Eaves Soffit Support Framing Cost
Construction Item Description
Construction estimating unit cost for 2x6 soffit support framing at the eaves (attached to rafter tails or truss ends).
One lineal feet of eaves.
We figure that a carpenter can attach about 17 feet of soffit framing per hour, with a little help from an unskilled worker. This cost also includes the labor of trimming rafter tails to uniform length.
HINT-- If you have scaffolding erected, you can probably do this work much quicker!
One lineal foot of 2x6 lumber per foot of eaves, with an 8% waste factor.
Goldenseal uses the eaves length as calculated on the Roof Dimensions screen.
