Barn roofs are often a gambrel, which is a two-sided symmetrical roof with slopes on either side.
Coined in the eighteenth-century as a “Dutch Roof”, key features of the construction involved the upper slope to be placed at a shallow angle and the lower slope instead is steep.
ELC Roofing carries out roofing works to a large range of buildings, including barns.
We can offer our customers the full range of barn roof material types and can advise customers on gable roofs vs hip roofs etc.
We carry out all of our own carpentry work as well as the roofing works to the outside of the building.
Over the years we have completed many projects working on barns and barn roofs, we have also fully re-built barns that have been in a state of collapse.
