Embedded roof: 60 models and designs of houses

Making the choice of the type of roof for a residential project is an essential part of planning and the adequacy of the architectural style. In the past, tiled roofs were more common and enjoyed in most projects. The current trend points to the extensive use of built-in roofs.

What is the built-in roof?

The built-in roof is nothing more than the use of roof tiles hidden by platibandas, in which it is also known as unseen roof tiles or house without roof. In this case the walls of the facade cover the tiles creating this modern and modern look.

Advantages and disadvantages

The built-in roof offers the main advantage of saving in relation to the total use of woodwork when compared to the construction of a conventional roof. With the use of asbestos cement tiles, the built-in roof can cost much cheaper than normal. In addition, the approach is more modern and aligned with current architecture standards.

The main disadvantage is that when choosing this type of cover, it is necessary to invest in thermal blankets, gutters for the water drainage and the construction of plaques to hide the tiles.

What kind of tile is used in this type of project?

In this type of project you can basically use asbestos cement tiles or precast concrete tiles. In the case of the second option, the advantage is a greater thermal control in the coverage.
