In response to Re: Roof with No Insulation beneath
Hube: The rafters are 4"x6" spaced 3 to 4' O.C. on a 3/12 pitch roof. Toung and grove ceilin is nailed to the top of the rafters. Ceiling is roughly 12' high at center of room. See Pictures at http://www.realtor.com/Prop/1023094761

There is about 800s.f. on top floor. Ceiling tounge & groove boards are nailed on top of the rafter/beam so it really looks nice but leaves no airspace even if I tore off sheathing and insulated when re-roofing. My only thought is when re-roofing to add rafters at 4 or 5/12 pitch above the existing roof and re-sheath and insulate below.

The home is located in mid-Missouri, day temps in summer are betw. 90-100, the house is shaded which will help matters.


Thanks - Tom
