Common Barn Roof Problems

Depending on the type roof your barns has, you need to watch for certain problems that can arise.

Wood Shingles: Some older barns still have wood shingles, often under other roofing material. Water is the biggest enemy of wood shingles and they require proper ventilation to remain dry. Once damaged, roofs with wooden shingles require a total replacement.
