Dont even have to do that, just need thicker C-channel welded back to back on the main supports, but already getting way out of hand as that is only if one decides to use a cement tile roof material.
Bluescope custom cut metal roofing and no need anything else. Regular ole cheapie thin roof c-channel support structure like all the locals know how to do already.
Cement tile roof way too hot of a heat sink for a 400k house anyway. At that budget it should be tossed.
Ive had metal roofing on my last 2 homes here in Thailand (and they weren't thai style either) and the roof on my house in Hurricane Florida is metal, along my 40 X 60 Sq Ft shop, metal.
