- flat - for it will either have to pour concrete floor or mount it from the factory plates (usually of hollow), using theirlaying special equipment (crane);
- Shed - this is the easiest option for those who are going to the roof of the garage tinkering with his own hands;
- gable - a more complex version of the roof, creating a demand for their specific construction skills, as well as greater consumption of materials (compared with pent roof).
Alternatively, you can consider the unit above the garage or attic full second floor.
Depending on the type of roofing should be selected and the version of its insulation:
- flat roof made insulate the top of a reinforced concrete slab;
- pent roof is usually insulated by laying insulation material between the rafters;
- gable roof can insulate or similarly pent or placing a heater in a horizontal overlap on the location of the garage.
Choose the right roof for your type of roofing material.
All these actions (choice of the type and the garage roof) should be performed at the design stage, since, depending on the chosen design and will vary its weight and consequently the load which the roof of the garage will have on the foundation (which in turn affecton the size of the foundation and form a belt, or a columnar base plate under the whole garage).

In the case of casting a monolithic concrete slab directly on the garage usually make it perfectly horizontal and slant create later, putting insulation (for example, expanded clay).
If assembled of hollow core slabs (or other varieties of plates), the bias can be created directly in the installation process (after doing the front wall above the rest (the height difference should provide a minimum slope of 2 cm per 1 meter length of the plate).
Pent roof garage simplest and most affordable option for beginners who want to make a roof over the garage with his hands - pent roof. As a load-bearing structures (rafters), you can use metal or wooden beams, andalso fastened on the two boards.

Undermauerlat be sure to put a layer of waterproofing (suitable pieces of roofing material).
- On top of the rafters stapler fixed construction vetrovlagozaschitnaya membrane.Then
- along trusses (directly thereon) is attached wooden kontrobreshetka on which (in the perpendicular direction) is fixed battens (solid or with a certain step depending on the roofing material).
- laying of roofing material is made in strict accordance with the process technology, developed by the manufacturer.
- next stage - the insulation of the roof - depending on the option chosen (between the rafters or in the plane of the overlap).Insulation on the inside (on the side of the garage) should be protected layer vapor barrier.
