The paper presents results of an analysis conducted in order to determine a cause of an emergency state of a timber roof rafter framing of a central nave ceiling in a church. The article showed an assessment of the current technical conditions, a description of the diagnostic tests performed and the results of the static strength analysis. Based on that information, the causes of this emergency state are described as the consequence of contractor’s errors during the execution and significant derogations from the construction design. Moreover, an implementation of a repair programme in order to restore the full value in use of the building is recommended.
