Gable garages are one of the most common types of garage. This simple, yet practical style of garage offers numerous possibilities.

What is a gable garage? With two sloping sides that come together at a ridge, gable garages are built to match the gables on your house, with the triangular gable facing the front. 

Advantages of gable garages include

  • Sturdy design
  • Allows for vaulted ceilings, increasing storage space
  • The sleep slopes allow rain and snow to run off much easier than other types of roofs
  • The pitch can be varied to match the look of your home
  • Windows can be added to the gable ends
  • Shakes and frieze boards can be installed to dress up the front

Gable Garages in Chicagoland

A build up of snow (which is common in the Chicagoland area) on a roof can be damaging, and even cause roof cave ins. Therefore, the steep slopes of gabled garages are advantageous in areas that have a lot of snow in the winter.
