No longer on the new form as of Feb 1, 2012 Gable End Bracing is something you can
do to strengthen the gable ends in your home. If you have gable ends and they are
not braced this is a relatively easy upgrade that can be done to your home. Some
homeowners with knowledge of construction and woodworking may even be able to do
this themselves, although it is not recommended. Please contact myself, a licensed
roofing contractor or general contractor to go into more detail about bracing gable
ends. Here are some pictures of common types of gable end bracing.
