"Wooden roof" Zuberec Off The Beaten Path Tip by matcrazy1

Zuberec Off The Beaten Path: 8 reviews and 8 photos

I especially liked amazing roofs of local wooden houses. Look at wooden shingles - thin and flat tiles fixed in rows to make the roof covering. I noticed that their design is different in various areas of Slovakia.

Most of houses both old and new ones had pitched or more steep gable roofs in Zuberec.
Why? Although they looked much better than flat roofs they must be more expensive.
Just my theory on it: Zuberec is located in mountainous area so there are heavy snow falls there at least from time to time in wintertime. Flat roofs would not endure tons of snows. People would be obliged to remove snow from their houses flat roofs which means - believe me - a lot of hard work.
