Gambrel Roof Gambrel Roof

A gambrel roof consists of twin slopes (one steeper than the other) with a gabled structure at both ends.  A gambrel roof is also the most common form of roofing preferred for building detached structures like barns. A gambrel roof is a simple and stylish structure that is preferred by architects as the design is minimalistic with few complex structures required for building it.

Utility of a Gambrel Roof

A gambrel roof can be used to create extra space in a large room used for storage purposes. If you have seen a barn from the inside, you would have noticed that the gambrel roof adds a virtual floor inside the building without requiring an extensive  frame to hold it in place.

City dwellers can use the gambrel roof to add extra space to their single storied detached structures in their garages so that the extra space can be put to good use for storing tools. The space carved out by building a gambrel roof can be even used a mini workshop with a small worktable.
