Alternatives to Conventional Roofs: Domes and Vaults — 5 Comments

  1. I left a question for Owen last week and I don’t know where to look it up to see if it has been answered.

    Thank you,


    • Rounded structures are the best, because the wind will blow around the building and not build up pressure like on rectangular buildings. This would include domes and roundhouses with conical roofs. Minimize any roof overhang to reduce uplift, and use strapping and special connectors to secure the roof.
