Metal Roof Turrets
A roof turret is normally a small tower that projects vertically from a building. Used commonly in castles a roof turret normally forms part of a larger structure. Usually with a round base, but also found with six or eight sided bases forming an angled tent or conical roof. While roof turrets are not always higher than the structure, they can contain staircases or rooms that you can simply walk into.
Turrets can be described as a small tower. A building with a turret may also have towers, but the general difference is that a turret projects from the edge of a structure unlike a tower that continues to the ground. Sizes of turrets are limited to the structural integrity of the supporting structure.
Turrets were commonly used to provide a defensive position to provide cover fire to adjacent walls. Recently roof turrets are used for decorative purposes and first appeared in England and most of Europe. Roof turrets are manufactured from wood, brick, stone, and metal.
