Gambrel Roofs

There are many different kinds of roofing styles to choose from. Roofs can have wildly varying shapes and arch levels and offer different levels of aesthetic appeal. One popular and incredibly practical style of roofing is a gambrel roof.

Our vast experience as roofing contractors has equipped us with the knowledge needed to handle even the most complicated and dangerous roofing assignments.

What Makes a Gambrel Roof

Gambrel is another term for a horse’s hock, and the gambrel roof gets its name because it shares a similar shape to a horse hock. Gambrel roofs have two strikingly different slopes on either of their symmetrical sides. The slope running from the perimeter of the house towards the center is very steep, often almost vertical. The next slope is much more gentle, meeting the opposite side’s gentle slope at the top of the roof.

Gambrel roofs are most commonly used in barns and other boxy buildings. They provide very tall ceilings that allow much more headroom than roofs with shorter pitches, and give a building a nice, historical feel.

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.
