Building Factoid: Roof Styles

There are many things to consider when choosing a roof line for a building. If you are looking for your structure to be symmetrical on the gable end you could go with an A-frame, Cape, Gambrel, Monitor, or Hip roof. If you would like to be able to place your doors on the soffit side of a building you may choose a Quaker style. Another aspect to think about in a cold climate is snow fall. Certain roof lines shed snow more easily than others. All of our buildings come standard with architectural shingles, you can always upgrade to a metal roof.
