A pro or a con, depending on the desired effect, wood shingles will grey with age and weather, unless stained, painted or coated with water-repellent preservative. Pigmented stains may be used to retain a natural-looking timber colour.

Rebecca Gross added this to Know Your Houzz: What Type of Roof Do You Have?10 May 2016

Gambrel roofA gambrel roof is a two-sided roof with two slopes on each side; the upper plane is less steep than the lower plane on each side. The roof shape is characteristic of American barns, also giving it the name ‘barn roof’. This roof shape offers the benefits of a sloped roof increasing space and headroom inside the building’s upper level.See a gallery of more gambrel roofs
