Eave/Gable Return pitches

What do you guys use for a pitch on your returns? Do you change it depending on the main roof pitch or just stick with a standard? Also, hip or no hip on the returns?

It depends on the pitch of the roof lines for me. If possible I like to match the pitch to the roof. Hip on the returns.
I do what the plans show or call for.
I prefer the hip returns.:thumbsup: The pitch matches the roof slope.

Most of the time, our houses have a freeze board on the gables, so we will pitch the return so that it meets the bottom of the freeze board. Just a cleaner look.
Those your builds loneframer? PM me if so....

I too like the hips as a roofer.... not so much... any return for that matter.... time. time. time... but hips look nicer. Same pitch as roof i think looks great.
