Connect your zones

Zones are the volumes of your rooms, so they should be treated as a full 3D block.

Even with flat roofs, the best policy would be to connect your zones to your roofs, much like you would do for the walls.

Connect zones

This way, when you roof moves (as they do), the zones will remain connected to the underside.

This has the added benefit of extracting the information of the surfaces it is connected to in the schedule, and works much better in Energy Evaluation to acknowledge the roof.
