With the Framing Roof App you will save countless hours of work the first time you use it. This app was designed to save time and improve the quality of work. Quality of work is improved simply by having Extremely accurate measurements and angles every step of the way. It's Fast and Simple to get measurements on the job, and Easy for everyone to understand.


Plywood Angles

With Plywood Angles you simply enter your first roof pitch (example 6/12) and then your other roof pitch (example 12/12). The app will then generate a to scale image of the piece of plywood with the correct angle, along with the top, bottom and side measurements.
No more taking out your measuring tape, snapping lines ext... you just saved several minutes of work and most importantly your plywood angle will be Perfect. Your hip and valley's will never have looked straighter.
You can also edit any of the plywood measurements, for example if you edit the bottom measurement, the app will update all other measurements instantly.



Lay-in Builder

The Lay-in Builder is one of the most powerful features of this app. This will literally save you hours of work the first time you use it. Here is how it works, you enter your first and second roof pitch then enter your desired truss spacing (example 16" centre) then enter your first truss height(detailed explanations inside the app). With these 4 values entered the app will generate
1- A 2d example, to scale of what the lay-in will look like.
2- Gets the ridge block length with the exact angles.
3- Gets the lay-in block length with both angles.
4- Gives you a list of every single truss lengths with both angles.
Just like that you have every single measurement in seconds, with the exact angles. Every piece you need to build your lay-in. You didn't have to chalk any lines, you didn't have to use a level to try to figure out where you ridge ends, you didn't have to use your measuring tape to measure every single truss length. You will save hours of time the first time you use it. This will once again improve the quality of work with such accurate measurements and exact angles there is no room for mistakes.

This way, if you wanted you could cut all of your pieces on the floor, then go up on the roof once, and have have every piece installed in minutes.



Hip/Valley Blocks

Everyone knows how complicated it is to get the length oh hip blocks. With this feature you can easily enter your first and second roof pitch and the distance in-between trusses. The app will then generate a to scale view of what the hip block will look like, the length of the block and the correct angle. So you can pre-cut all of your blocks for you roof.
You can also use this to get the length of your corner hip length, to do this you would change the "distance in-between trusses" to be the length from the inside of your facia to the inside of the truss.


Common Blocks

The Common Blocks feature is very similar to the hip/valley blocks, just enter the roof pitch and the distance in-between trusses. Then the app will generate a to scale view of what the common block will look like, the length of the block and the correct angle.
You can also use this to build lower roofs for example if you where building a porch roof that was leaning back onto the house. You would change the "distance in-between trusses" to be the length from the house to the inside of your facia, it would give you the length of your truss.
Similarly you could use this to build a gable, you would change the "distance in-between trusses" to be the length from the centre of the gable to on end. This would give you the truss length for one side of the gable.


After you try this app, you wont want to go back to the old ways of building roofs.
