A gable refers to the triangular section of a wall at the end of a ridged roof, extending from the eaves to the peak. This architectural element is formed by the inclined, or sloping, edges of the roof, which converge at the top ridge, creating a shape that is often associated with classic house designs. Gables can be seen in various styles and are a common feature in many types of buildings, from residential homes to churches and historical structures. They not only add aesthetic value but also serve practical functions such as providing additional space in the attic or upper floors, improving the structural stability of the building, and helping to shed water and snow from the roof. Gables may be adorned with decorative elements like vergeboards or bargeboards and can include windows or vents to enhance lighting and ventilation in the space beneath the roof.
