I just picked up a neglected house up here in the Pacific Northwest through an Estate Sale. I plan on renovating and living there with my 2 kids, at least for the next 2-4 years.
I'm looking for ideas on how to add insulation to the existing roof deck. The house is a 1950's rambler with exposed car-decking over beams. I want to retain that look. Guessing it is around a 3:12 pitch.
I got a quote from a local roofer to do a tear off and add rigid insulation then TPO membrane for over $20,000! This is for a 1,000 SF house, so, with overhangs, maybe 1,500 SF of roof area.
I am looking for suggestions, Thanks
