Common Roof Types in St. Louis
Hip Roof Style

Upgrade Your Home's Style and Function with Hip Roofs | Choose Home Perfect Exteriors, the Top Roofing Replacement Contractor in St. Louis

A hipped roof has four sides that come together on a high ridge, making a high pitch like a gable roof, but every side of the building has a sloped roof section. Where these roof sides come together is called a hip, giving the roof style its name. Hip roofs are probably the second most common type of roof that Home Perfect Exteriors encounters while doing repairs and replacements for homeowners and businesses throughout St. Louis.
