Stylish Roofs

I was online last night when i decided to collect and gathered some stylish roof photos on the web. Err. I wish we have either one of these roofs. It would be great I'm sure.

This one is a Tiled Roof. I am not exactly sure what kind of materials are being used to have this fabulous style. This is very common especially to the Western areas. Clay tiles are very durable and can last up to 50 years. But the prices are usually double then those of traditional roofing materials. And also, only professionals can install this roof so perfectly like the one shown in the photo.
This is a Metal Roof. Ours belong to this category but it is not as lovely as the one shown above. They said that Metal roofs are more durable than any other materials and can last for ages if they are properly installed. They are quite cheaper too than any other else.

These is actually my personal favorite. It's a Terra Cotta and it is said to be an Italian-inspired roof. Just look at the style and see how eccentric it is. So lovely and unique and very eye-catching indeed. But then again, we should not be looking only after the apperance but also the quality of each materials. And also, these roofing materials, no matter how expensive they are, can be useless if they are not properly be installed so it is always better to let the professional do the work. It's all about the workmanship so hire those who has the right skills like those Roofers Portland Oregon can offer.

Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos of stylish roofs, Bluedreamer. I must say that these really are amazing. We all know that the main purpose of the roof is to provide shade and protection to the household. But aside from that, it is the one which gives a home a character.

Truly yours,

One more thing that roofs can give aside from character is distinction from other designs. By looking at them, you can actually get an idea where the design came from.
