Matching Up to An Existing Roof
It happens all the time… you grow out of your home and need an extra bedroom, a bigger kitchen, maybe you want to add a garage. Or maybe it’s your shop that’s getting crammed and you could really use some extra work space. That’s when you start thinking about adding on to your existing building. In order to match up to an existing building there’s a couple different measurements that are needed so that you will end up with a matching roof addition.
- Overall span (Wall to Wall)
- Bottom Chord Length (If different than the Wall-to-Wall Span)
- Overhang Length
- Heel Height
- Peak Height
- Pitch/Slope of Roof
