A pyramid roof is a type of hip roof. All four sides come to a point at the top of the roof. There are no vertical sides or gables.
Pyramid roofs are mostly used for smaller buildings, such as bungalows and cabins. They are also used for auxiliary structures, such as pool houses, garages and storage buildings.
Pros: A pyramid roof is extremely resistant to strong winds. This makes it an excellent architectural choice for hurricane-prone and high-wind areas.
The slope provides extra space for ventilation, attics or high ceilings. Plus, energy costs will be reduced by the overhanging eaves.
Cons: The cost of pyramid roofs is higher due to the complexity of the design.
