Mansard Roof design has been in existence since the 16th Century. It was predominantly French designed homes, but made its way to the US in the late 1800's. It was not used as often in traditional homes, but many high rises residential buildings in the late 60's and 70's were built with them. We now see Mansard roofs most times with a flat or sloped roof at the top. In heavy snow and rain regions of the US, having a sloped or flat roof atop a Mansard is preferred for durability.

Unmatched beauty. Although there are some maintenance challenges, it's hard to beat the appearance of wood shingles.
Wood is another common material for residential shingled roofs. Wood shingles have a beautiful finished appearance and generally provide very good durability. Wood shingles are cut with a saw and have a consistent thickness and shape, while wood shakes are split and are usually thicker and rougher. Either option can be used depending on the look you want to achieve and the style of your home.
While wood shingles and shakes are a great roofing materials, there are a couple of drawbacks. These roofs can be expensive to install, and they will require more maintenance than an asphalt shingle roof. However, the benefits of wood shingles still make them a popular choice -- especially for historic homes.
