I have an average pitch roof on my house and
it is time to re-roof. How do I go about changing the pitch on the roof to a higher pitch? Will the old roof have to be removed or will new trusses or common framing be done on top of the old roof? I think it would really update my house to have a higher pitched roof.

Cool

Hi!
This is a structural change, and you will need a building permit. Call your local building inspection department. Good Luck!

If you are going to change the pitch of your roof, you had better ahave a big fat check book, and hire a pro. Old roof must come off, and I mean all off, so when you sit in your easy chair you see nothing but stars. big job, big money.

Yes, hire Carpenter to do the job. You will still need a big check book.
