Glossary of Roofing Terms
At Century Roofing Limited, we hope to educate our homeowners on any terms undefined. We’ve compiled a handy list of some of the most common roofing terms so that you can understand every step of the roofing process.

GambrelA two-sided roof with two pitches on each side with a shallow slope above a steeper one.
