Maui Hip Roofs

Maui Hip Roofs


A hip roof has slopes on all four sides that are all equal length and come together at the top to form a ridge. Hip roofs are more stable than gable roofs as the inward slope of all four sides makes them more sturdy and durable. They’re excellent for both high wind and rainy areas. The slant of the roof allows

rain to easily drain off with no standing water. Hip roof offer extra living space for vaulted ceilings or an attic. They also provide more ventilation and ability to make additions, such as dormers or a crow’s nest.

Hip roofs, like gable roofs, can be with almost any type of roofing material, such as shingles, metal, or tiles.

Types of Hip Roofs

Simple Hip: This is the most common type of hip roof. It has a polygon on two sides and a triangle on two sides and the sides come together at the top to form a simple ridge.

Cross Hipped: Similar to a cross gable roof, this uses separate hip roofs on homes with different wings. The line where the two roofs meet is called a valley.

Half Hipped: A standard hip roof that has two sides shortened to create eaves.
