Mansard roofs play a big role in historic homes and modern homes. They have their charm but they also come with their own sets of problems for homeowners as well.
For example, the flatter, upper slope of the roof tends to make drainage difficult, catching water and snow. This leads to leaks and water damage for a lot of homes with this style roof, especially when their roofs aren’t being installed with best practices.
The Mansard Roof also isn’t the best for resisting extreme weather conditions. Storms can blow debris to the flat part of the roof, causing damage and long-term issues. They tend to require a bit of maintenance.
