Can I Have Roofers Change the Pitch of my Roof?
As you live under an aging roof, you may be considering getting repairs or a full replacement done. When this time comes, you may also notice other issues like a ceiling being too low, running out of space in your home, or just getting tired of the look of your home. All of these factors may lead you to asking, can I have roofers change the pitch/direction of my roof? At Roof Right Inc, a roofing company in Hampstead, Maryland, we are asked this question often from homeowners, so we’d like to take some time to explore this topic.
Changing Roof Pitch Explained
The short answer is yes, you can change the pitch of your roof to solve any of the aforementioned issues or more. Your roof can be overhauled so that the pitch or shape is changed. The pitch refers to the roof’s slant. The slant can be increased, reduced, or even changed in direction depending on what kind of roof you prefer.
This is not a typical roof replacement, however, when roofing contractors replace a roof, they will generally tear off the roof’s aging shingles and install new ones in; perhaps even replace or reinforce the roof’s structural support, insulation, and replace the gutter system, too. If you want to replace your roof entirely for a different pitch or change in direction, it would require major changes such as replacing your roof’s ridges, rafters, inside walls, and more. It would be a much bigger job than just replacing the roof, but it definitely is possible.
