Title: Site-cut pitched timber roofs

Ref Code: GG52
Authors: B Keyworth

Abstract1: Pitched roofs can be constructed in several ways: in situ with each piece cut and fitted individually, prefabricated or site-made trusses to support in situ fitted purlins and rafters, or with prefabricated trussed rafters forming the complete roof structure. Prefabricated roofs have become the commonest form of construction but there are situations where a purpose designed and site-built roof may be preferred. Part 1 explains the principles of this type of construction and describes patterns of roof structure and design considerations. Part 2 describes a method of fabricating and constructing a typical domestic site-built roof.
