Gable Ends for Pitched Roof

A gable end helps to enclose a pitched roof. The feature provides great functionality as well as an aesthetic appeal. A gable end is designed to help make sure that outside moisture does not damage your walls or your steel roofing. If you think a gable end roof would look good with your home, the Zim Group can gladly help you.

Gable ends are both functional and attractive - they isolate your walls from outside moisture. Zim Group uses quality gable ends and a rigorous installation procedure to ensure solid lifetime performance.

The lower part of the edge strip is nailed Over a 1"x6" board and its lateral face covers the end (facia) board. The overlap is 4-4" and the nailing distance is 20-36"

The roofing tile panels are inserted as far as they will go into the edge strip (i.e. 2" deep). Finishing the roof this way provides a nice, aesthetic appearance and rigid connection between the roofing panels and the edge strip. The strip is connected to the top points of the roof tile using self-tapping screws.

The Quality You Expect
ZIM Group certainly blew us away with the job they did on our roof recently. The whole job was so professional from start to finish and we cannot recommend them highly enough to anybody else who needs a metal roof built for them.
