Re-roofing a barn
I have a 36 x 48 timber framed barn that needs a new roof. Almost all of the rafters are still sound, but a few need to be replaced. When I was younger, I would have pulled all the old tin, replaced the rotted rafters and put down new tin. Now that I am older I don't want to pull the old roof down, I would like to roof over top of the old tin.
My plan is to lay purlins across the old roof and screw/nail these into the purlins and rafters below the original roof, then screw the new roof into the new purlins. In an effort to save time, can I use a nail gun to shoot through the purlins and through the old tin roof, or, will I spend more time in the E.R. having nails pulled out of my lower legs?
Huge mistake with that whole idea.
To old to do it right (like I am) then hire it out.
