RafterDeTTails are non-structural elements that quickly and easily nail onto truss tails. When ordering be sure to consider if you would benefit from having your RafterDeTTails supplied with pitch-cuts (AKA: slope-cut).

Typically, if your blocking is square to the top chord of the roof trusses, you should not order pitch-cut tails. Another way to consider this is to identify if the stucco or exterior wall finish stops at the roof line or the wall plate. Below are the two most common scenarios. When ordering consider if you are dealing with detail #1 or #2.
