We caught a snag! We were convinced that we had a 5-12 roof system however after removing all the ceiling & insuation, we discovered that it was really a 4-12 roof. Without getting into too many details this means that we may not be able to get our scissor trusses. Truss manufactures can make us a scissor truss roof for a 5-12 roof but NOT a 4-12 roof. We are waiting to hear back from our truss installer to see what other options we have. Providing that we do not exceed the City of Calgary's building restriction of creating a new roof that exceeds their maximum height...we will not need to apply for a development permit which could hold us up for months in approvals. Approvals can take 6-8 weeks or 6 months depending on the complexity of the build.
