Gabled Roofing

Gabled roofs are the most common kind of roof in the United States. Gabled roofs have angled slopes that are the same on either side. These slopes meet in the middle of the roof and offer an elegant, heightened appearance, and they experience relatively few problems when used in the right environments.

If you’re looking to have your roof repaired or replaced, an Austin roofing contractor from AAA Mustang Roofing can help you perform any roof-related task you could ever want to tackle, and even those you don’t! Contact us at 512-650-9866 to discuss your roofing options with an Austin roofing expert.

Advantages of Gabled Roofing

Gabled roofs have become the most common style for roofs in most of the U.S. because they come with several great advantages. For starters, the popularity of gabled roofs has made them relatively cheap to install and maintain. Their steep inclines allow water to run off of the roof, reducing damage caused by heavy rain. While this is not much of a concern here in Texas, gabled roofs are great for snowy areas, since they can hold heavy snow without collapsing. Gabled roofs are also great for areas where strict building codes prohibit second stories from being built on houses. A gabled roof can bypass these codes and act as a pseudo-storey.

Unfortunately, gabled roofs are susceptible to strong winds. Unless fitted with a strong vertical edge, hurricanes or tornadoes may rip the roof off of its frame. Fortunately, both hurricanes and tornadoes are uncommon here in Austin, so a gabled roof is a great, inexpensive choice for this area.

I first became acquainted with Zane Nixon, owner of AAA Mustang Roofing, when our metal roof was severely damaged in a hailstorm. Our house is large and has over 30 separate roof surfaces, with an equivalent number of edges and valleys. Zane and his crew completed the work in less than two weeks, and it is flawless. They even repaired several areas that suffered structural damages.

Just recently a flash flood on the day following hurricane Hermine caused significant damage to the first story of the house. I called Zane and he was here within 30 minutes and stayed until midnight. Using squeegees, towels and a shop vacuum, we managed to save the rugs and furniture. However, the walls required substantial repairs. Zane worked closely with our insurance adjuster, and the wall repair work under his guidance as contractor is every bit as professional as his previous work.

I recommend AAA Mustang without reservation for any type of construction or remodeling job.
