Save time,money and less wasted timber when pricing by working out Roof timber lengths using this easy to use Roofing Ready Reckoner as Reviewed in Home Building and Renovating magazine.The review can be read on my website as listed below.
Timber thicknesses for Hip/Valley and Ridge need to be subtracted from the returned true Rafter Lengths and the roof plates must be level, paralleled to each other and square.
Remember this app returns the True Lengths of the rafters..
This is a aide to Roofing and a basic understanding of roof framing is necessary, always double check measurements..(measure twice...Cut once).
I have checked the return values rigorously but i cannot check every possible combination of returned values.
As roof projects/building construction are out of my control, i cannot not accept any responsibility regarding materials,workmanships or costs relating to the use of this Roofing Ready Reckoner..always check your measurements.
(measure twice...Cut once).
