About the Truncated hip roof

The truncated hip roof is a variant of the hip roof where the ridge is flattened.

A hip roof’s roof planes run from each facade and intersect along a ridge (or meet at a point in the case of a tented roof). But in the case of a truncated hip roof, its sloping roof planes connect to a flat roof, which generally has a different roof finishing.
