Roof Valley Framing Cost
Construction Item Description
Construction unit cost for framing valleys on a roof. This is an additional unit cost for the valley framing-- also include basic truss or rafter framing costs for the entire roof area, to handle the basic roof framing cost.
One lineal foot of valley.
We figure that one skilled carpenter can frame about 25 lineal feet of valley per hour, with a little help from an unskilled laborer.
The cost includes one foot of 2x10 lumber per lineal foot of valley, plus some fasteners.
Based on the valley measurement from the Roof Dimension screen.
