sloped roof


We are redoing one side of our roof it is a old house and the wood all needs replacing .It was built with 2x4's with 24in. centers . we intend to lift the roof and replace the entire roof .If we replace them with 2x6 is that up to code.

sloped roof


Depends on the roof design, design load, rafter span, etc. See for example:
