The Piedmont area is home to countless farms and agricultural zones. It’s just part of life here in Virginia to see barns dotting the landscape in rich, colorful reds, forest greens, and dark blues. Each of those barns serves an important role: it shelters either our cherished animals or inventory from the elements, keeping the most precious cargo safe from harm.
At Piedmont Roofing, we specialize in creating barn roofing solutions that keep your animals safe without sacrificing function or form. From standing seam metal roofs to corrugated metal for hay silos, Piedmont's barn roofing projects create sturdy, durable, long-lasting, and easy to maintain roofs.
By far the most iconic barn roof to see in Virginia is the gambrel roof. This two-sided roof features a slant towards the rear and a roomy and high front facade. Gambrel roofs date back to the 18th Century, and were common in American, German, and Dutch cultures right from the turn of the 19th Century.
A gambrel roof leaves plenty of room for an inner loft--the ideal location for hay and supplies.
Gable roofs are traditional, classic, and perfect when you want your barn to match your house. This barn roofing style is suited best to metal or asphalt shingle roofs because it has only two equal sides that meet at the peak.
For some property owners, choosing a gable barn roof may result in a more budget-friendly project, and thus, may be preferred. Gable roofs can also accommodate bell towers and other aesthetic additions that may not otherwise fit into a traditional gambrel roof.
For farmers and those who work with agriculture, the round roof barn is often a better choice. It, too, is one of the most iconic barn shapes found in the United States. Its history dates back to the 1920s, when entire communities would come together to create and shape wooden planks into the perfectly-arched wooden slope seen on rounded roof barns today.
Fortunately, getting a beautiful new round roof isn’t nearly as difficult today as it once was. Gone are the days when an entire community needed to chop, form, and install the round roof barn over a period of several days. Today, Piedmont specializes in barn roofing and can have your new barn roof up and installed using pre-formed materials that speed the job along.
Don’t have a full barn that requires roofing? Even if your outbuilding is small, Piedmont Roofing can create a solution to match its size. This is the ideal solution for hay storage sheds, equipment sheds, and livestock storage areas like chicken coops.
Our skilled Grade A contractors simply assess and measure your structure and then create a quote based on these adjusted figures. We highly recommend standing steam metal or corrugated metal roofing solutions for these smaller yet important outbuildings.
Despite the fact that these roofing solutions are smaller, you will still enjoy the same durability, longevity, and craftsmanship as a full-size roof. Every project, no matter how large or small, is just as important to us at Piedmont Roofing.
