Final finishing of the roofing structures of buildings, carried out upon completion of the main construction works, assumes, as is known, their filing, which ensures the normal operating conditions of the erected structure.
It can be said that the filing of the overhangs of the roof is the final touch that gives the entire building under construction a completely finished and attractive appearance.
Consider in advance the installation of drainage
In this case, before starting to finish the gable roofs, you should provide the following details:
Wind board of the gable overhang
Need for the finish of the overhangs is taken into account for the first time upon completion of the installation of the rafters, or more precisely, before the sheathing in the area of the lower edge of the roofing.
Already at this stage of work, a number of preparatory operations are carried out, which consist in the following:
In addition, after sawing off the rafters by a single measure, it will be necessary for them to fill the lowest (outermost) plank, thereby delineating the overhang.
We recommend starting the weatherization of the exterior walls of the house after finishing the roofing eaves.
Among construction materials, more often the most widely used are the following types:
When using galvanized steel, the casing is quite rigid, which will protect the roofing spaces from strong wind loads.
The so-called soffits are among the most popular materials used in finishing roofing In appearance, they look like slightly thickened siding panels with special perforations, which provide ventilation of free spaces under the roof (attic).
The lining used for filing the overhangs should be made of high-quality wood to ensure the finish is resistant to the effects of wind and rain. It should be said that some users prefer to sheathe the overhangs with PVC clapboard, which is characterized by increased resistance to moisture.
Flanging of the overhangs with a planed cut board is made with a small gap (about 1-1.5 cm). The advantage of its use as a cladding material is the possibility of air penetration under the roof, and, as a result, uniform ventilation of the entire space under it.
Types of overhangs of the roof
To the immediate lining Overhangs start, as a rule, immediately after the installation of the roofing system. At the same time, their finishing can be done in the following ways:
Regardless of the type of overhang you choose, its installation on the gable areas of the roof is performed according to the first scheme.At the same time, the lathing ends are first aligned on the gable wall with a "overhang" to the width of the overhang, after which the end boards are nailed to them, which, along with the rafters, determine the overall thickness of the structure.
