SO reading this site has been good and going to hire a pro to do my roof but he is letting me be involved. Since reading the site it is clear I would not be happy with my own work.
I don’t want the one day done thing as it won’t give me time to straighten up the roof, home is 35 years old, back and side are nice, front has some sag over the garage area/
Roof in not plywood but looks like 1 x 8" pine but it probably only 5/8 thck will check.
The main thing I want to do is punch up any sagging roof joists, not the right term but the 2 x 6’s that give you whatever pitch that the roof is attached to. I figure I can cut them push up then attach anoher 2 x 6 glue and screw and it should stay up, we are not talking alot here I will measure tomorrow so I have an idea.
I notice if I sight down from side to side the facia bows out in one spot, not tons but will reduce that as well, not a big deal when it is apart.
How do you guys deal with minor sags in the roof, is it something that is
usually ignored or do you tell you customer I can lay some sheets of plywood on top or or. In this case i dont think I would put ply over the solid pine,
Also how does tarping up work? I asked this contractor if he minded if I strip the roof and he smiled and said no. Later I thought if I want to spend a day tweaking things a bit first then I should have some tarps ahead of time just to be 100 percent sure if there are any weather changes.
What sizes do you use, home is 25 x 60 feet long and how do you fasten them. I can ask him ell this stuff but it is 2:00 am plus here and think I should let him sleep.
