About this Book
Now fully revised, the third edition of this renowned book by Ralph Goss has been made even more valuable with the addition of many new illustrations, and takes into account not only traditional cut roof construction but also modern trussed rafter roof assembly methods.
Revised by C.N. Mindham, author of Roof Construction and Loft Conversion, this new edition contains many new drawings of constructional details for which his own book is much acclaimed. Information is now given on wall plate and gable end strapping, wind bracing, truss clips and other roofing metalwork, as well as on the modern tools and instruments necessary to carry out the construction work.
Proven as a book for professionals, the book is now equally suitable for the keen DIY enthusiast as well as the professional. All information is given in both metric and imperial units.
