Flat roofing with roof deck or traditional roofing?

What I mean with traditional roofing are the triangle shaped ones, technically called 'hip' and 'gable' roofing. Personally, I like traditional roofing, it does not look like a house without it, plus I want an attic. I can also open up a portion for a terrace. What do you prefer?

I agree with you, traditional roofing looks better and is also more practical. Flat roofing causes problems further down the line because rain water collects and there is no triangle that makes it slide off.

Yes, water is also an issue, but a trivia, flat roofing is more inexpensive than the traditional ones. In building estimates, the roofing has one of the highest costs hehehe
