This is a pretty serious job you are considering, and
there is alot to consider. After you remove the
existing shingles and sheathing do your old rafters
spring back? If so you are off to a good start.
Just nailing a 2x6 to the existing rafter would only
add weight without much structrual strength. The
rafter jacks are critical there. Consult an engineer
or architect to examine your existing roof to determine
how to best repair it without adding too much weight. Then again removing the old shingles may be
the answer.
