I have used 3D Home Architect and we have a tutorial and information site comparing various brands of software. Almost all of them (3DHA included) have problems with some types of roofs. Simple gables and hips can be modeled but there can be some tricky and unexpected complexities in how the software wants to draw roofs.

Simple CAD programs such as these are best used as floor planning modules and for trying out furniture and window layouts. Full 3d modeling we have to leave to the big programs with the thousand dollar price tags and the serious six month learning curve.
