Manual or Automatic Roof Design

Manual or Automatic Roof Design

Manually draw your roof layout, or, if your project has just one roofing type, you can let Cedreo create the roof automatically. With the manual option, you’ll click on the points of each corner of the house floor plan to build an outline of the roof’s perimeter. Choosing the automatic option prompts the system to detect where the roof’s perimeter would be based on your existing interior layout. If you want to include overhangs, one click is enough to add them to all your roof edges thanks to the assistant.

Custom Roof Types

Custom Roof Types

Our roof designing software lets you craft several different types of customized roofs. Gable, single slope, multi-slope, and flat roof types can quickly be selected in the roof building menu, where you’ll also be able to add details like dormers, gutters, downspouts, and scuppers. You can even create bonnet roofs by placing conjoining pieces over hand-traced areas, using the single slope setting.

How to Add a Professional Roof Design in Minutes

More than just a roof design software, Cedreo accelerates every step of the house design process, from creation to presentation. Once you’ve created your project’s foundational layout, you can work with the roof editing tool to wrap up the exterior design. In just a few clicks, you can build a roof that perfectly complements the rest of your hard work.

1. Select Your Roof Type

Thanks to an intuitive interface, it’s simple to add roofing to your house layouts. The roof editor can be accessed in a tab of the editor’s main menu, where you can select the type of roof — gable, single slope, multi-slope, or flat roof — you wish to draw.

2. Trace or Automatically Add a Roof to Your Floor Plan

Trace the exterior perimeter over your floor plan by clicking the point of every corner. For roofing of just one style, Cedreo can automatically generate a rooftop, snapping it directly onto the traced outline you’ve made. For two or more different roof types, you’ll need to trace each section individually after selecting the style in the menu.

3. Adjust Roof Parameters

Once your rooftop is inserted, you can adjust the parameters to get the exact height, angle, and pitch you need. Easily add new points in the roof’s geometry, select ridge offsets, and define edge parameters.

4. Customize Roof Materials

Select roof covering materials from Cedreo’s constantly-growing catalog, sorted by style, including tiles, slate, metallic, and other common types. Coloring and texture can be selected by clicking one of the preview swatches.

5. Add Structural Modifications

Add structural modifications to enhance roof aesthetics and functionality, such as inserting windows via dormers and skylights. Again, style choices are abundant for structural additions, even gutter piping and scuppers.

6. Visualize Your Roof in 3D

Work all finished? Then you’re ready to create beautiful 3D renderings to share with your team and your clients. From the HD Visual tab in the main menu, you can use camera options to take snapshots of specific viewpoints of your model.
