Hello. We are building a 1.5 car garage (14' wide). The house has a hip roof with a pitch of 3.5/12. The garage company specified a hip roof for the garage with a pitch of 4/12. Would the difference in pitch be noticeable visually, or should we specify the same pitch that the house has -- 3.5/12? Both house and garage are one story. The front of the garage measures 14' wide and is 26' long. The house measures 25' wide in front and is 40' long. The garage door will be facing the street and set back from the front of the house about 8', and there will be a 6' walkway between house and garage.

Would it be better to have the same pitch, or is the difference small enough not to be noticeable?

Thanks for any help. We would really appreciate hearing from someone.

Martha B.

I would prefer to be the same, but it's not a really huge difference, so I wouldn't stress about it too much.
