We can debate all day depending where you are from you either have a roofs or rooves in your neck of the woods.

1. The plural of roof is roofs or rooves. “Rooves” is an older form of the word and rarely used these days. Australian children right up to the 1980s, for example, were brought up with the word “rooves” rather than roofs, and it is still an accepted form in Australia today (though uncommon). Also, despite New Zealand English developing from UK English, it should be noted that in NZ, the plural of roof is rooves, in both its written and spoken form.

2. The accepted plural is “roofs”. The Oxford English Dictionary lists “rooves” as an alternate, one of several outdated spellings used in the UK, and in New England as late as the 19th century.
