Roofing has evolved a great deal in the past few years, but even the best roofers can’t modify the internal structure of your roof without stripping it off and replacing it. Fortunately, there are still ways to change the shape of your roof and make your home look more appealing.
The thing to remember is that the external part of the roof is just a surface area that is meant to protect the interior. Made from slate shingles, metal panels, wood shakes or any other type of roofing material, it can do a great job of keeping rainwater out, but it has no baring on the overall shape and structure of your roofing system.
The internal structure, on the other hand, does. The decking and the way it’s shaped determines the roof’s slope and overall shape, and it can be modified to suit your needs. If you want a greater or a smaller slope, or if you want a dome shaped roof, it can be done in some circumstances, as long as the Austin TX roofer understands what you need and as long as the new structure can be supported.
If you want to have the shape of your roof modified, simply talk to your local roofers, and set an appointment to have them examine the roof and discuss your options.
