Roof Styles for Prefab Loafing Sheds

We have three roof styles to choose between at Winslows Custom Buildings, including our regular style, A-frame horizontal style, and vertical style. While each provide reliable protection to your property, they do have quite a few differences.

The regular style roof is the most economical option available throughout the metal building industry. With rounded-edges and horizontally-oriented panels, this design is recommended for areas with moderate weather conditions.

Also known as a boxed-eave and horizontal roof, the A-frame horizontal style also has panels that run parallel with the length of the loafing shed. We recommend this roof style to customers who reside in areas with some high winds but not heavy rain or snowfall.

Vertical roofs are a top-selling item for metal building companies, popular for their versatile design and outstanding durability. With vertical panels, ridge caps, and a hat channel, this roof can withstand harsh weather elements such as high winds, heavy rain, and heavy snowfall. If you purchase a structure more than 36’ long, you are required to have a vertical roof style.

Common Uses for Loafing Sheds

While some people may think this, our steel loafing sheds are not limited to protecting livestock from the weather elements. Rather, they can be used for a variety of uses. From horse stalls, hay sheds, calving and fawning stables, or a tack room, these structures can do it all.

Trying to keep your agricultural equipment in tip-top shape can be a tedious task when you don’t have the proper protection for it. But with one of our loafing sheds, you can now keep your tractors and other pieces of machinery in good condition.

If you plan to have the shed installed in a pasture or enclose it with corrals for your animals, it can be utilized for storage. Keep all your hay, feed, grain, grooming tools, and riding equipment stored near-by under one of our metal loafing sheds.

Another handy way to use our loafing sheds is as a shelter for your children while waiting for the school bus. No matter the weather, you can have peace of mind knowing they are safe in the mornings before getting on their school bus.

Advantages to Owning a Loafing Shed

As one of the most utilized buildings on farms and ranches, you might be wondering what makes loafing sheds so special. From their galvanized steel frames that keep them standing strong during foul weather, to their low maintenance quality, this building style has many advantages over other designs.

Virtually maintenance free
