Rafter tails are the exposed exterior portion of a building’s wood structural truss that projects beyond the perimeter wall of the structure. This structural element is secured to the top of the exterior wall or tie beam and then projects to support the soffit overhang. Exposed rafter tails are typically scrolled and detailed and is a major component of the soffit system in timber frame construction. A rafter tail is also considered, depending on where it is used on a home, as an Outlooker, Outrigger, Lookout, or Tailpiece. These components support the soffit system, cantilever deck, or gable end; all of which consist of tongue and groove roof decking and the fascia board or exterior trim board.
