Which roof styles are most common in Lakewood:

From the beginning of time we see that the architecture changed with age in Lakewood.  Even today some Lakewood houses are a clear example of how houses used to look in a certain era of time. However, for some houses, it is difficult to say when they were made until you ask someone about their history.  The dates in which the houses were made can show the specifications of the house of that era. These houses are also called ‘vernacular’ architecture (an example of vernacular architecture can be of a three-story house with a full width covered entrance, gable roof and a bay window on both floors). Click here for information

The different and unique type of houses with their different shapes, materials, doors, windows, etc makes Lakewood unique. Although, the houses that were made in the past face one problem; the problem of repairing. You have to keep in mind and consider the architectural style with which the houses are made when it comes to repairing so that the new stuff corresponds with the old fittings, for example, your house got windows with beautiful pattern and one day while cleaning the windows you break one glass; now you start to survey the shops for window’s glass similar to the design of your former window but you found out that these windows became obsolete 2 years ago and now you will have to get all the window’s glass changed or have 1 different window.

The houses that became a part of Lakewood’s identity:

·         asymmetrically arranged doors and windows,
