Your roof goes on top of your house. With a Tractile roof, that’s the only rule. With almost no limit on roof angle (Tractile roofs can be as shallow as 5 degrees and include sections at 90 degrees), the only constraints your have are the laws of physics and geometry, and your own imagination.
Match your roof to your walls. Match your roof to your fence. Match it to the natural surroundings of your home. Mix and match colours, textures and materials with only one consideration: what you want your roof to look like.
Far from the simple ridge saddles (the bits that poke up in the middle of the roof) and filials (the flashy finishes at the apex or edges of a roof) that are the ornamental staple of traditional roofs, there is no real limit to what you can do with a Tractile roof.
Design flourishes and finishes to your liking; make them visual treats, practical treasures or a combination; and remember that they can all be incorporated into a Tractile roof using the secure and easy Tractile Interlocking Building System.
The concrete and terracotta of traditional roofs can crack and chip if made too thin. Intricate details are just not possible with these outdated materials.
The Tractile System’s modern approach allows modern materials. You can still have a traditional style of roof, but now you can have one cheaper and stronger that lasts longer.
