Abstract:This study examines the cost-effectiveness of converting flat-roofed buildings to sloped-roof buildings as an alternative to repair or replacement of the existing roof. Alternative framing systems are shown and special problems explained. Benefits of roof conversions include better energy performance and improved building appearance. Conversions are cost-effective for small buildings and become an even better alternative when life-cycle costs are considered.
