Smashed Roof - repair or replace?
My 12' x 24' outbuilding got hit at a 45 degree angle by a dead yellow birch, about 24 " diameter, which did some damage. The insurance company is paying me for my misfortune.
8 ft of the 25 ft long roof is smashed on one side of the ridge, the rest of the pine (#1) is in good shape. The gable ends are fine, maybe a little squashed (2 inches) at the plate closest to the tree.
The 9 joists all popped as the building squashed out. 4 of the 18 9' rafters are intact, leaving the rest to be replaced.
I have stripped shingles, roll roofing and tar paper off the worst smashed side by bracing the fallen roof inside the walls. The other side is not nearly so badly damaged- mainly the broken rafters. I have 2 sections of steel scaffold that make the roof pretty accessible.
I intend to salvage as much pine as I can. Is the best way to take the roof apart then re-build, or would it be feasible to jack up the roof and "pair" the broken rafters? Which is going to be less work?
