It might be easier for you to create your roof by using a "mass" face.

 

Create a mass which follows the shape of the roof you want to create, and then follow the steps outlined here:

Hope this helps!

I would use swept blend to create this roof and I would cut it to shape that is needed with a void extrusion. Blend might be easier to handle than a mass.
