Our Granny Flat Roof Types

Here are some of the roof types used with our Granny Flats:


Skillion – a flat roof that has a visibly significant pitch. This is normally a single sloping roof surface, not attached to another roof surface. The term skillion can also be used for a smaller addition to an existing roof like a verandah or carport.

Split Skillion – also called a clerestory roof. This is a roof with a vertical wall which sits between the two sloping sides, which features a row of windows (or one long, continuous window). This type of roof allows plenty of natural light and is also good for increasing air flow if the windows can be opened (versus fixed).

Hip – A hipped roof has three, four or more pitched planes, depending on the shape of the house, and all planes slope downwards from a ridge at the top of the roof. Hipped roofs often offer shady eaves and great strength, which makes them good for high wind rated areas.

Gable – Gabled roofs can be the main style of roof used on a dwelling, or it can also be used in combination with a hipped roof. They are easily recognised by their triangular shape.
