I have a small ranch with a pitched roof. I want to change it to a
gambrel roof so I can put a couple rooms upstairs. Do I have to have it
ripped entirely off and a new gambrel roof put on or can they just raise
the existing roof angle and put the peak of the gambrel top on it.
What's a good cost estimate for this?
You will have to file plans and get permits for your project, so ask
those questions of your designer/architect. The specs will probably
call for tear of and replacement with gambrel trusses. Price those at
your home despot to get an inkling of dost. The common spacing is one
truss every two feet. Add 20% or so to the price for custom sizes of
