Get A Roof Pitch That Suits Your Style


When it comes to building your new home, we know you want it to not only look good on the inside, but on the outside too. A great way to add more space in the home, and give it some seriously good looks on the outside is with a pitched roof.


Typically, most modular homes have a roof pitch of 14-16° – however at Manor we offer 18° as standard, thanks to an innovation with our chassis, which allows the roof to sit slightly lower for transportation, so we can add a steeper pitch while still meeting regulations for delivering your home to your site.

But that’s not all, we can also build homes with steeper pitches, for example 27 & 30° thanks to our folding roof system. This clever design means that a steep roof is ‘folded down’ when it leaves our factory, again to meet transportation regulations – and when your home is installed on site, the roof is then ‘unfolded’ to its full pitch, giving your home a fantastic look. The pitch of a roof can dramatically impact the look of your home:


As you can see, the pitch of a roof can really make a difference to the look of your home – and with our range of different roof pitches and styling you’ll be able to get the look you are after for your dream home!

The pitch can also make a difference on the inside of a home – raked ceilings help open up a space and give a bright and airy feel, while flatter roof pitches create a cosy space which is great for bedrooms and rooms where you want to sit back and relax. As standard, Manor offer raked ceilings in the living, kitchen and dining areas on most designs!


Whether you are after striking, raked ceilings for your home or prefer a shallower pitch, Manor homes can help you get the perfect look for your new home, inside and out. Why not check out some of our finished homes and see what a difference the roof pitch can make to the look of a home!
