Just took a closer look at the ridge of my roof and noticed that the angle between the ridge and virtually all the rafters is quite sloppy. Is that a problem is that the way these joints are supposed to look?enter image description here

  • All I can see on my phone is spray foam. The joint looks ok but on my phone is similar to looking at it from 20' away.

    Does your roof structure have any horizontal members tying the sides together? Do the side walls lean ever so slightly outward ... ?

These gaps are a normal occurrence when the framing dries out after cutting and setting in place.

As long as the rafter is tight at the top, you should have no concerns.
