The roof is a structure that protects players from being exposed under the sun. It was added in the Sun and Moon update. Players can place it over anything, except on other roofs. Standing under it will slow down the rate at which players lose cold. Only the player and teammates can see under the roof, unless you are very close to the roof. Garland can be placed on the roof for decorating. Roofs are vital for vampires in the Vampire Mode, as they need protection from the sun at day. Vampires start out with 4 roofs when they spawn, which they can use to protect themselves from the harmful sunlight. It takes 10 seconds to craft a roof. This action can be speed up when using an IKEA Manual.
