A roof face is an old VectorWorks concept. We used to have roof faces before we had a complete roof. We would make a roof out of several roof faces.
A roof face is one part of the roof, what you might call a roof plane. A roof face is a hybrid object. VectorWorks takes a 2D roof plane and projects it to 3D.
Movie also covers 2nd Height Click.
