Changing a roof pitch goes beyond a routine roof replacement because it involves big structural changes in the walls, ridges and rafters part of a system, whereas a new roof simply means tearing off and replacing roofing shingles and damaged roof decking, flashing and gutter systems.
So, when does it make sense to change your roof’s pitch? According to sheet metal fabrication expert Roofmasters Roofing and Sheet Metal, you should do it when:
1. You Are Dealing With Serious Roofing Issues
If you have a sagging roof, for instance, you are not only looking at problems with your decking but at something more serious involving your roof’s foundational elements. This is common in older homes or those that have not been maintained in a while. If you’re going to give your roof an overhaul anyway, you can take this as an opportunity to change your roof pitch to suit your needs and preferences.
2. You Are Planning a New Home Addition
If you are building up, you will have to replace your roof. This is a great time to change your roof’s pitch to not just accommodate the addition but to also drastically change how your home looks from the outside with sheet metal, resulting in a truly head-turning upgrade.
3. You Want More Head Room
If you don’t want to build up but would like higher ceilings, you can turn to change your roof’s pitch. This is because raising ceiling heights means raising roofing slopes, translating into a higher-pitched roof for you.
Whatever reason you might have for wanting to change your roof pitch, remember one thing: Trust only an experienced roofer to take on your project and ensure the best results.
