Roofs and Roofing

Manufactured roof trusses can be designed in many ways and provide for a very strong and cost affective construction process.

Roofs with a slope of 4" or 5" in 12" are relatively easy to install and maintain. Such roofs are suited for standard composition roofing - a good choice in terms of cost and longevity.

Here are a few more suggestions:

  • A good roof overhang on all sides of the structure will help protect the siding, reduce damage from clogged gutters and may also reduce summer heating needs.
  • All bathroom and kitchen fans should be vented out through wall or roof vents.
  • Gutters must extend the full length of a roof's drip line.
  • In areas that are susceptible to roof moss, zinc strips should be installed at the time of the roofing installation.
