Gable vs Gambrel vs Hip Roof

By  | May 11, 2013

There are a few choices when it comes to roof type, Gable, Gambrel and Hip Roof.  Each one has its own benefits and serve different purposes.

 

 

 

 

  • Gable Roofs are made up of two right triangles and slopes on two sides.

  • Gambrel Roofs have a double slope on each side and are often what most people picture as barn roofs.  The advantage to a gambrel roof is the space directly under the roof is larger which makes more room for storage.

  • A Hip Roof is a slightly more dynamic roof with four slopes.  Four hip rafters brace the roof making it sturdier and more difficult to construct than a gable roof.
