Is a hip roof good for wind?

A hip roof shape is a very good design for a pitched roof, when it comes to wind load. This is because it has less cross sectional area on the roof, when compared to a gable or dutch gable roof design.

How are hip roofs measured?

The depth/span and width/length are always measured as a frame size, which is everything except for the guttering. This is the same for other carports. The only difference being that the guttering can add 250mm to 270mm to the overall measurement depending on which type is used.  This is due to the gutters being on all 4 sides.

What is the difference between a gable roof and a hip roof?

The main difference is that a gable roof slopes on 2 sides and a hip roof slopes on 4 sides.

The 2 sides that do not slope on a gable are usually designed with gable infill panels.
