How is a Residential Roof Constructed?
The construction of a residential roof starts with a frame construction and then followed by covering it with suitable roofing material. Today's roofs tend to be built with timber, and offer a large variety of shapes and materials. Modern timber roofs are typically framed with pairs of prefabricated trusses or common rafters that are fastened along with truss connector plates. Other factors that should be taken into consideration during the roof construction project are thermal building insulation, ventilation, steepness, or pitch of a roof.
