Down here in TX, we do not have a lot of terracotta roofs. I have not inspected one previously but I know the roof structure for this product needs more beef.
Today’s house has some cracks in the brick veneer in various places but most are at the top (top plate) and none go to the ground.
My thinking is that the structure is not sufficient for the weight. However, I do not know what would be required for this roof. Does anyone have a general idea what would be required?
The attics were framed with 2x10s and with plywood decking. Each rafter had a collar brace, but that was pretty much it. Slope was typical for this style (probably 6/10).
I’ll try to include a couple of pertinent photos.
Thanks in advance,
