Installing a new roof/rafers for my detached 2-car garage
The roof on my 2 car garage is coming apart due to a termite infestation. The rafters and woodplanks are being eaten and has caused water to leak through.
I have contacted a few contractors to estimate the job but I have questions regarding what type of rafers I should use and what type of roofing material would be ideal for a garage in NYC.
Specs: 20x24 flat roofed detached garage.
Can anyone advise one:
1) Whats the ideal roofing material? Modified Bitumen/Rubber?
2) I have 14 rafters/joists that need to be removed. They are about 4x10x24. I am concerned about termites and would like to know what type of wood would be "termite proof". I have looked into Parallam Plus, which is a LVL wood but am not sure if it is overkill. Most contractors offered to use Doug-fir wood which I believe is untreated.
Any tips/suggestions would be appreciated.
THanks in advance!
