Gable Style Roof
What is a Gable Roof?
A Gable Roof is a style of roof that consists of two roof sections inclining in opposite directions on the top; horizontal edges meet to form the rooftop edge. This roof style is presented and molded like an “A”. Also known as a pitched or crested rooftop, the Gable Roof is characterized by its triangular form and configuration at the end.
Benefits and Advantages of Gable Roofs Include:
- Gable Roofs easily shed moisture, like rain, snow, and hail, to which prevent leaks from happening.
- Provide a vaulted ceiling which creates an attic or upper room. This extra space makes for better air circulation and purification.
- There incredibly straightforward design makes it easy to build and can be a less expensive option when building custom garages.
