Question

how can I support my timber roof?


I am buying a property in a few weeks and on the structrual report is explains that the roof needs additional supports to take the weight of the new concerete tiles. I am a traniee carpenter myself but want conformation that all it needs is A frames installed to distribute the weight to the purlins and wall plates?

Many thanks
