Roof: Residential Construction Framing

Roofs can be constructed in two different ways: the conventional joist and rafter method, or the more common trussed roof method that uses prefabricated units. This program covers both techniques for building a roof frame, while providing safety, tool, and green-building tips as well. Topics covered include common rafter layout (ridge, birdsmouth, and tail cuts), roof overhangs, installing the rafters, and installing the roof sheathing with notes about when to consider possible regional specifications. A viewable/printable instructor’s guide is available online. A Shopware Production. Part of the series Residential Construction Framing. (10 minutes)
