Cutting rafters requires knowledge of rise,run and line length per foot of run and skill with a 'framing square' and power saw. Advanced Roof Framing by Marshal Gross is a good book to read about it.

Home owners should never ,ever cut a rafter. It might be a supporting rafter, and to cut one you need to get a good carpenter,and or consult with someone that knows how to do it and has the knowlege to this type of work.

Hello,

Heck, it depends on what your rafters are being used on. If you're just making a lean-to in the woods, I wouldn't go to the trouble of consulting a professional. Now, if you're building your new house, it might be over our head, or you still might not need a pro. I don't know how smart you are, you might be a good carpenter. ALL carpenters do not know how to cut rafters, but, most can figure it out, with some instruction. If you think you can learn, and are capable of building whatever it is you're building, then, I say: "Get a book and Go for it ! !

A 12 12 roof means 12 inches of rise for every 12 inches of distance across the width. The ends of the rafters would be cut on a 45 degree angle. Both ends. How long depends on the size of the roof.

If the plate height gets higher increase the depth of the birds mouth that sits on the plate. The birds mouth is the notch cut out of the rafter that allows it to sit flat on the top of the plate. If the plate is low then you will need to place a packer on top of the plate.

We just got a home inspection today with this problem. There is a possibility for the rafters to separate from the ridge board from hinge action.

At the peak of the roof where the rafters meet instead of the rafters meeting each other, there is a beam between them that they rest against. It runs the length of the roof peak.

The most important thing is it a load bearing wall. If the wall runs with the rafters it is not load bearing , if the wall runs under the rafters then it supports them.
