Gable Dormer Roof Framing Cost
Construction Item Description
Construction estimating cost for framing a small gabled dormer roof.
We figure about 7 hours of additional carpenter time to frame the dormer, with a little help from an unskilled worker.
The cost includes 120 lineal feet of 2x4 lumber for side and end walls, plus 32 lineal feet of 2x6 lumber to frame overhangs. Note that materials for the main dormer roof are included in the basic roof framing.
Goldenseal suggests the dormer count from the Roof Dimensions screen.
