Roofs are complex geometric structures presenting many challenges for the carpenter. A poorly cut timber roof is a structural liability and can prove difficult to cover adequately, increasing the chances of poor performance and associated ingress of water. The materials, design and craft techniques of roof carpentry have evolved over centuries.
