Roof Framing

Roof framing is one of the important steps in construction. Roof gives us shelter from sun and rain. Roofs have many different shapes. Houses have gable, hipped, mansard, and gambrel, flat and shed roofs. Roof shape gives an architectural style for a house.
Roof framing can be simple or complex, depending on the roof. Overhangs, hips and dormers add greatly to the complexity of the framing. Gambrel and mansard roofs offer more head height for attic rooms. Shed roofs are usually the easiest type to connect to an existing roof when adding-on.
