  • Rafter roof – A rafter roof is made with beams that rest on top of each horizontal wall. It may have a ridge beam, where the top part of all the beams join together. The beams may also collide with each other, forming beams called couples
  • Truss roof – Truss roof constructions are a pre-manufactured type of roofing. They come in a wide variety of styles, and are specially designed for each building by the manufacturer.
