Stick frame roof vs Truss
We are planning on purchasing house plans, but have realized the plans include stick frame roof. (Building in NE Ohio)
My dad, who will be helping with our self build, has been a construction worker for 35 years and is sort of stuck in his ways.
He told me last night stick frame roofs don’t allow for air space between the insulation and the wood plywood for the roof, so the roof doesn’t last as long and there’s lots of issues. Can you still get a high R-value with high density fiberglass, or blown cellulose on vaulted stick frame ceilings/roof?
Is this true? are there options that can be done to prevent?
