Question DetailsAsked on 5/31/2017

What does it cost to change the pitch and on a roof? We need to add about 2-3'for ascetic reasons.

The previous owner converted the old gagarge to a family room. Then added another garage. The house is a two story plantation. It just looks odd.

My recommendation - accept the odd looks (and that is not an uncommon thing to have, so I doubt it will have significant impact on resdale value - ask the realtor you bought it thorugh for their opinion) - almost certainly in the $5000 or more range and up to about $10,000 in many cases, by the time you tear off, reconfigure or replace the framing, and reroof. Granted on a plantation that could look pretty odd, but figure what it is worth to you versus other places your money could be spent or invested for your retirement or such.
