Gable roofs provide, while one of the simplest roofing design options, can also be among the most effective and least cost roof options. There are many configuration options for a gable roof, but they all feature two sloped sides that come together at the ridge, with a gable on each side. The slopes on each side helps direct moisture to run off quickly. This creates a roof that will keep rain away from your structure, and help prevent large amounts of snow or ice from accumulating on your roof in the winter.
A gable roof is a popular choice because they are typically simple designs, and a cost effective option, both for roofing and framing. They can, however, be prone to wind damage if not installed and braced correctly. Gable roofs need to be securely braced, with little overhang, to be able to withstand high winds like we can experience here in St. Louis. An experienced roofing contractor will know how to use the proper installation technique to ensure your gable roof is sound, and your structure is protected.
