A Jerkinhead roof is a type of residential roofing that, aside from having a cool name, combines a few elements from traditional gable and hip roofs to make it one of the roofing’s more stable designs. Clipping the ends of a standard gable roof provides more reinforcement and better resistance against the wind.

However, all these benefits come at a cost. Like, literal cost, as building such a complex design can prove to be expensive. If you’re considering turning your roof into a Jerkinhead, you might want to consult with a roofing expert first to see if it’ll even be worth the cost of construction. A friend of mine had his roof turned into a Jerkinhead, but he saved some money on materials as this roof design can be built from just about anything. He hired people who did roof repair in Campbell to build his new roof and it turned out amazing.
