Connecting roofs in Sketch in Xactimate online

Updated by Jill Bowers

You cannot manually adjoin one roof to another in Sketch. However, roofs that are part of the same structure, match the same slope, and have other identical properties may merge. 

For example, a structure with four roofs, as shown here, are all separate. 

But because Roof 7 and Roof 6 have the same properties, they can merge. 

Move one roof closer to the other by grabbing the small red diamond next to Roof 7 or Roof 6 and dragging the roof closer to the one next to it.  

This causes the roofs to merge. The merged roof is named F12. The lines that still appear within the roof indicate the structures below the roof.
