Gable Roof Design

Gable Roof Design is the standard garage roof style. A gable is the generally triangular portion of a wall between the edges of a sloping roof. The triangular gable faces the road and is built to match the gables on the house. This style is common and normally gives your design a degree of consistency. Gable end roofs are not recommended for hurricane regions.

Reverse Gable Roof Design

Reverse Gable Roof Design is one of the most common garage roof styles. The angle of the roof line slopes to the front and back of the garage. These are usually miniature additions that allow homeowners to include windows and peaks in an otherwise flat roof slope. The garage door is placed underneath the slope of the roof instead of at the end, underneath the peak.

Hip Roof Design

Hip Roof Design is built for extra storage capacity and extra strength in windstorms. They are usually symmetrical with the roof sloping on all sides. A square hip roof is shaped like a pyramid. A hip roof on a rectangular plan has four faces. Hip roofs have a consistent level fascia, meaning the gutter can be fitted all around. There are several types of these Hip Roof Design garages that are available.


I-Joist is ideal for the homeowner with extra garage storage needs. The strength of the I-joist wood beams in the floor allows the structure to support the weight of additional storage space above. They are available in long lengths and are consistent in strength and straightness. These sturdy structures are available for those home owners that need to put larger and heavier items away and out of site to maximize available storage area. They will not bow, crown, twist, cup, check or split as would a dimensional piece of lumber.
