Materials Used To Build Roofs
New roofs are required for a number of reasons; you may be building your own home, undertaking a barn conversion or renovating a derelict property. Rain runs off the tiles or slates attached with nails to wooden laths on a pitched roof enabling it to drain away into the guttering attached under the eaves. A flat roof can often be turned into a sun deck, green roof area or roof garden with sufficient reinforcement.
Repairing leaks in roofs is important in order to prevent structural damage and damp affecting the fabric of your home so speak to a roofer if you suspect your roof is not water tight. Whatever type of roof you have, a roofing contractor should be able to advise on repairing the leak and water proofing your home, from pitched roofed semi detached homes to roofs on outbuildings and garages. Leaks can be avoided by maintaining your roof and replacing old damaged flashing or securing slipped roof tiles.
Loft conversions are an ideal way of utilising unused space in your home to create extra bedrooms for growing kids, a playroom, home gym or library and adds value to your home too so if you like the idea of converting your attic, speak to a roofing professional. Light and ventilation can be provided through Velux windows or sky lights, or if your want additional headroom, a dormer may be an attractive option. It is important to ensure you have sufficient loft insulation to reduce heat loss in winter and keep your attic rooms cooler in summer, either with insulation between rafters or in the floor.
