||Through our 25 years of experience, Lumberjack Log Homes has
developed an unparalleled roof system which includes log rafters, ridge pole, collar ties, 2x6
T&G decking, rigid insulation, ventilation and sheathing.
After the log rafters are
completed, we deck the roof with 2x6 T&G pine. The 2x6 runs horizontally up the rafters and
becomes your finished ceiling on the interior which has the strength to carry the load of 6
Three layers of 2 rigid insulation gives an R-value of 38. The roof
is vented by adding 1x4 furring strips on 16 centers and covered with sheathing and felted
before adding metal or shingles.
