Barn Re-roofs

Keuka Valley Builders Barn Re-Roofs

Undoubtedly, if you own a barn for a long enough period of time, you will be involved in the process of a roof replacement at some point.

Although most people don’t usually get too excited about spending time or money on replacing a roof, it is a necessity every so often.

Many barn roofs have a gambrel-type form. A gambrel roof is defined as one that is usually a “symmetrical two-sided roof with two slopes on each side.

The upper slope is positioned at a shallow angle, while the lower slope is steep”.

This type of design tends to allow for supreme head room within the upper section of the barn, and also provides a steep slope for snow to fall from, while avoiding large amounts of snow collection.

On some of the older, gambrel roof barns, one might notice some sagging of the roof taking place. That can come from structural deficiencies which should be evaluated before a new roof is installed.

Once the structure is sound, some of the noticeable sag in the roof can be shimmed out before the new roof is installed.
