Some good roof framing plans for a house include the box gable, the skillion and the dormer. Good roof plans vary depending on their intended use. For example, good roof plans for a stable, such as the open gable, differs from what makes a good roof plan for a gazebo.
Tips for choosing a good roof framing plan includes plans that avoid valleys because they concentrate water; consider the climate the roof must endure; ensure accurate calculations for proper flashing placement; and making sure the slope between the ridge and the eave is consistent. Other considerations include using asphalt underlayment instead of synthetic, and vented attics instead of roof insulation.
