Today, installing a roof on a house is not such a difficult event. Do-it- yourself roofing is a less expensive type of work, but without the help of a small team of people, work can take a long time. The roof for the house is one of the most important components, since without it, no owner will feel completely safe before climatic tests. That is why, many owners think about how to build a roof of a house. In this article, it is planned to highlight the general principle of the production of a shed roof.
In order for the roof of the house to be durable and meet all safety rules, you must first design its frame on paper, and only then begin the installation. For the construction of the roof, we need to buy a bar with the standard dimensions 50X150X6 in the required quantity. This beam is calculated based on the fact that the placement of these bars will occur on the roof every 60cm.
Since our roof will be shed, it is necessary to install vertical standing sections of timber on one of the supporting walls of the house to install the bearing timber directly. Each of these vertical segments must be fixed to the wall using self-tapping screws, with an approximate length of 9 cm each. Prior to installing and securing the bars, it is necessary to check the vertical level and drill holes in vertical racks at an angle. The height of the uprights is calculated based on the design angle of the roof of the house.
The hardest thing is that the roof of the house with your own hands was installed correctly is the process of lifting 6-meter bars on the wall of the house. For this work, you will need a team of 3-5 people, since one simply can’t physically do this. One of the ends of a 6-meter beam must be strengthened on a vertical support, strengthening it with the help of self-tapping screws. The second end is best placed in a cutout in the wall at a distance of 5 centimeter recesses. After this, this end is also fastened with self-tapping screws.
One of the most important points is the problem with the horizontal laying of single-bearing beams, which will give the ceiling a perfectly even design. This problem is solved with the help of a universal building level and a 5-meter rope. The horizontal beam laying process is as follows:
1) To begin with, a single-support beam with one end should rest on the wall, and the second end, previously tied with a rope, is attached to an already installed beam. Then we need to put a level on the beam we install above.
2) By loosening the rope gradually, we reach the position at which the beam begins to take an absolutely horizontal position. After aligning the beam, we tighten it into a knot on the rope.
3) We attach the beam to the beam. To do this, it is best to choose the following connection method: we fasten the bars with the help of fastening both bars through and through in the places of their direct fastening. For fastening, it is best to use studs with a diameter of up to 10 mm, as well as washers and nuts that are interconnected.
After the roof of the house with your own hands is almost finished, you need to do the boarding of the pediment. This small space between the wall and the roof is best clogged with 20 mm thick boards, and you can fasten it to vertical posts with either nails or bolts with nuts.
Thus, all the work on the correct installation of the roof and roof will take you no more than 3-4 days. I hope that after this article the question of how to make a house roof does not bother you anymore. If you still have any questions, please contact your personal mail on the site.
