Flat roof question

Recommended Posts

Greetings,  does anyone have suggestions on best method to build a flat roof on a garage?   Should I just use a floor system or can I build a zero pitched roof system?   

 

Thank you,

It really depends on the roof edge condition. 

 

If you have overhangs and no parapet walls I would just use a zero pitched roof.

Otherwise I would use a floor without a ceiling or roof and set the "ceiling height" to match your desired parapet height.

Hi Joe, Thanks for the reply.  

 

When I try to assign a 0.0 pitch, Chief makes it 1/4".   Is there a way to make it a true zero?  I checked Defaults and it will still change to 1/4".

 

thx,

Open the roof plane and set the pitch to 0".

      I would like someone to help me set up a flat roof on my plan.  There are three ceiling heights.  The flat trusses would be constant height - 4 ft.  So, there would be three respective roof heights, each separated with a parapet wall.  I then also need to get the wall framing and new roof framing to all be correct and show up properly.
      If the person that responds is qualified, I would also like to generate a framing plan.   I would like to get responses from anyone that is interested before sending my current plan.  But for now, I can send a picture of what the house looks like (minus the roof/truss system).
      Thank You.  Philip
