Need help with my roof and ceiling on 1955 California Ranch
March 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Before I even bought the house a roofing company would not certify the roof over my garage and patio because it is flat. Then when I bought homeowner's insurance, I paid extra to insure a flat roof. Finally, some of the homes with the same design in my neighborhood still have glass all the way to the roof line on the main house. My house has a drop ceiling which covers fiberglass batting and central heat and air ducts. I could fix the ducts, but what kind of roof can I put on that will insulate and allow me to get back my pitched wood ceilings? What kind of roof will satisfy the roofing inspector and insurance company on my flat top roof?
