Roof Truss Examples
Here are some examples of different types of Roofs and Roof Trusses.
-Gable roof : There are only 2 roof levels on a standard gable roof and gables have to be built up to seal of the other 2 ends. The roof extends over the gable ends with a small overhang.
-Gable roof with parapet: The gable walls can also be built up to extend higher than the roof. The roof has to be sealed off against the parapet walls.
-Hip roof : All 4 sides of the roof are sloped and no walls are built up.
-Louvred hip: A small gable is placed on the apex of the hip to form a louvre.
-Polynesian roof: The roof is cranked on the sloped level to form a roof with 2 different pitches( people also refer to it as a Bali or Chinese roof)
-Exposed trusses: The ceiling is placed on the topchord of the truss to expose the inner part of the truss. Different types of trusses can be manufactured to the customers requirement.
