I live in a semi built in 1936. The roof was secured to prevent roof spread/spay with steel wires. Over the years the wires rusted and to combat roof spread wood was used as a replacement to these braces this has worked well, but has meant a loss of roof space. I want to get this space back by placing metal bracing lower down the roof frame connecting to the ceiling joists. I know I can buy these brackets/braces but don’t know what they are called or if they are standard size??? I am not looking to do a roof conversion just get back the space for storage without having to dodge the existing bracing.
Thanks for the help.
