GABLE VRS HIP ROOF ON OSB TAKE-OFF


Posted by john wiley on March 31st, 2002 08:43 AM

I'M IN A HEATED DISCUSSION WITH A LUMBER SALESPERSON THAT A HIP ROOF NEEDEDS MORE OSB THAN A GABLE TAKE-OFF. (LOSS FROM ALL THE CUTS. WE ARE TRYING TO ESTIMATE A HOUSE 40'X50' WITH 6/12 PITCH. SHE IS USING A FACTOR OF 1.118, I SAY THE FACTOR SHOULD BE 1.58. EXAMPLE 40X50X1.118=2236/32=70 SHEETS OSB. I SAY 40X50X1.58=3160/32=98. COULD SOME ONE HELP ME???
