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.
