Did a Wind Mit on a 2 story townhouse today. 100% of the outer perimeter of the roof was hip geometry with 4 sloped planes. But the roof had a flat top where the A/C unit was located. Dimensions of the entire roof were 40x20 and the flat roof 25x10. Feels to me that the home owner should get a credit for roof geometry, but my gut is telling me that this one falls into the other category. Which is it??
Put a pict for us to see.
Go with your gut, since there are many interpretations on roof shape determination. Sounds like a mansard roof to me.
Really?! I won’t comment… I’m sure your glad.
I was thinking Mansard as well but that would just confuse all looking at the report likely other without seeing.
I was in somewhat of a compromising position on this 2 story roof, so I didn’t get the best pics of what I’m trying to convey. But here are pics of the 2 different parts of the roof. I didn’t think mansard because it wasn’t a steep pitch. Medium, about a 4/12. Basically, a traditional hip roof with the top half cutoff. Thanks for the confirmation, I’m going with “other”.
You are describing a Mansard roof - This will not qualify for hip shape
Picts tell me DEFINITELY OTHER for client.
