A small false roof, or the raising of a portion of a roof, so as to throw off water from behind an obstacle, such as a chimney.
A roof component used to divert water away from curbs, platforms, chimneys, walls, or other roof penetrations and projections.
A subsidiary peaked roof, similar to a dormer, behind a chimney or other obstruction in the main roof, where it serves to prevent water from backing up behind it.
A saddle-shaped, peaked construction connecting a sloping roof plane with a wall or chimney. Designed to encourage water drainage away from the chimney or wall joint.
A roof structure used to divert water along a valley or around a chimney
A small gable like projection from a slanted roof used shed water away from a projection comimg up through the roof. See also dormer.
Sloped area built into the roof to provide drainage that otherwise would not exist. Crickets are often built behind chimneys to divert water away from the back of the chimney.
The evaluation of a part of a roof surface as a means of promoting drainage of water from behind an obstacle such as chimney.
A small peaked saddle constructed on the top of the basic roof and behind the chimney. A cricket is generally not required.
A vaulted roof component constructed to divert water from flat sections of a roof. See Saddle.
a small structure built behind the chimney, resembling a small roof in itself, that diverts water around both sides of the chimney
a water deflector that serves to direct rainwater away from the chimney
Changes the pitch of a pueblo style home roof to divert water to a scupper or drain outlet.
A pitched saddle construction at the back of the chimney or other vertical surface to deflect water around the chimney.
A small, roof-like structure that is set behind a chimney to divert rainwater around the chimney.
A peaked saddle construction at the back of a chimney to prevent accumulation of snow and ice and to deflect water around the chimney.
A small saddle-shaped projection on a sloped roof used to divert water around an obstacle such as a chimney.
Drainage-diverting roof framing. Generally found on the high sloped end of a chimney.
an elevated roof substrate or structure, constructed to divert water around a chimney, curb, away from a wall, expansion joint, or other projection/penetration
A relatively small elevated area of a roof constructed to divert water out of a dead or flat valley or around other projections.
An area of the roof (behind chimneys for instance) that is built up to allow water to shed around the object.
When two different roof pitches meet, a second roof is built on top of the primary roof to create a valley. This helps water drain.
A relatively small area of a roof constructed to divert water from a horizontal intersection of the roof with a chimney, wall, expansion joint or other projection. (see Saddle.)
A second roof built on top of the primary roof to increase the slope of the roof or valley; a saddle-shaped, peaked construction connecting a sloping roof with a chimney; designed to encourage water drainage away from the chimney joint
A FROMEN CONSTRUCTED ON THE BACK OF A PROJECTION THROUGH YO' ROOF, PARTICULARLY A CHIMNEY, WHICH DIVERTS WATER RUNOFF TO EITHER SIDE OF THAT PROJECTION THEREBY AVOIDING A DAMMING EFFECT.
A peak saddle construction at the back of the chimney to prevent accumulation of snow or ice and used to deflect water around the chimney.
a relatively small, elevated area of a roof constructed to divert water around a chimney, curb or other projection.
a superimposed construction placed in a roof area to assist drainage.
Small gable-like roof structure used to divert water and debris from intersection of sloping roof and chimney; also called a saddle.
Peaked structure, which diverts water at the juncture of a roof slope and a chimney or two roof slopes.
