Roof construction with an attic design

When preparing a roofing project for the construction of any type of attic, it is recommended to take it into account in different projections to visually determine the location of all supporting elements. Calculating all the parameters of the attic, must be immediately introduced to the project.

Based on the calculations made by Gikas Roofing experts, the locations and methods of installation of all the structural elements of the beam system are determined. The calculation is also necessary to accurately determine the materials required for the construction of the attic and their parameters.

Roofing structural elements

Any of the wooden constructions of the roof attic consists of certain elements that are connected to each other by joints that have different configurations. In order to better understand the design of these connections, it is advisable to design each of them and when performing installation work, it is imperative to have this design in hand.

The structure of the sloping roof includes the following system elements:

  • Mauerlat – element, made of wooden beams and mounted on the main walls of the building along its length. It serves for the uniform distribution of the load from the structure of the beam system to the wall and the foundation. Rafter legs are installed and fastened to the Mauerlat. This element is placed on both the gable and the broken structure of the attic roof.
  • Floor beams, which are placed on the main walls of the building and form the basis for the future attic and the roof of the first floor, as well as for the installation of the entire beam system.
  • The leg of the beam consists of a straight element – bar planks on a gable, or two parts – on a broken structure. On a pitched roof, the top, attached to the ridge, is called the ridge and the bottom, which forms the walls of the attic, is called the side. Obviously, the side leg will be installed on a multi-level base, while the upper ridge beam usually hangs
  • A bar or board of a certain thickness is used for the ridge. Sometimes they do without it, connecting the upper parts of the ridge of the beam legs, which form the ridge.
  • Shelves are the supporting elements of the system. They support the girder legs and relieve some of the load from the walls and the base of the structure. The shelves will in the future become a box for the walls, which will be installed in the process of finishing the attic.
  • Slopes or other elements that are installed diagonally are additional brackets that hold the beams and retaining beams together, making the system design more reliable.
  • Rods are placed between the legs of the beam for rigidity, called beams between beams – they also give rigidity to the system.
