I'm not a roofing expert, but I've built a few barns in my time. Our family farm never had a budget for professional building, so I grew up climbing on rusty tin to patch holes so our horses didn't get wet in the summer rain storms. Now I do pay the experts to keep my barn's roof in good shape. I'm still a concerned consumer when it comes to roofing. Many of my fellow equine enthusiasts don't know a shingle from a brick, so I decided to share my experiences with roofing for barns to keep hardworking stable owners from overspending.
