From the Architect's Corner - Mansards

I've heard the phrase, "the steeper the better!" come out of more than one Project Specialist's mouth when it comes to the question of if our products are suitable for mansards. By design, however, many curve out a little at the rake. A roof with a slight curve is generally not an issue as when warmed our steep slope roofing products are fairly pliable. When in doubt, send us a sketch or a picture and our Technical Team will take a look!

Below is a picture of a mansard with a curved rake and our simulated shake roofing material being installed.

Happy Friday, Architects!
