DIY roofing


Hey Begal, are you ever going to post an actual picture of the roof that you are actually planning to work on?

I think you are referring to what I usually call "barn roof" it kind of looks like the inside of corrugated cardboard?


But said roof will last 3 or 4 times longer, so if you're in the house long term you'll get your money's worth. However, if you like to house hop, it's probably not worth it.


Hey, if we don't discuss, how will we ever learn.
Cheap metal roofs come in several different configurations, but yes, you get the idea. You are talking serious money for copper, but it can last for hundreds of years in the right atmosphere. There is a great little book called "Copper and Common Sense" That was produced by the Revere Copper co. which was produced in response to the lack of knowledge in the roofing industry regarding the physical properties of copper, and metal in general with respect to how it reacts to temperature changes.

Many roofers simply do not understand the fact that metal has to be designed to allow for movement, because it is going to move, regardless of what is done to restrain it. Through fastening it to a wood substrate is an exercise in futility.

Have a good day.

Okay what to do about this? First it seems like the roof is slipping. Not too much, not sure but this might have happened when i put in the internal frame for the insulation. I don't think it was there 1.5 tears ago...

2nd is the worse part of the sag, the rest is not so bad or almost straight. I hope those trussed don't need replacing. I guess just sister them up and fill in plywood?

Do you spend all your free time on Google looking for other peoples homes to post on here?
If it's really yours then it's time to call in a pro.
There's nothing in those pictures that was done right.
You have no clue how to fix it or have the tools to do so.

The most confusing thread I have ever read!

I think all the drinking is being done by the OP.

This guy clearly has nothing better to do than screw with a bunch of roofers. He's gotta be a roofer himself.

Oh this isn't the only forum he's doing this on. He must have no life and very bored. He's not even in this conversation here. Why do you think I broke out the popcorn so early in the thread.
