A roof is the top covering of a building, including all materials and constructions required to support it on the walls of the building or on uprights, providing protection against rain, snow, sunlight, extremes of temperature, and wind.
Roof House Extension
There are several options for extension roofs, including a solid or tiled conservatory roofing system, a flat roof with lanterns or flat skylights or even a large conservatory roof with an internal pelmet. That’s a simple, low-cost solution that can tie in well with the main house. But it’s also pretty unusual because most additions are in the front or back of the house—where there’s yard space—rather than on the sides.
Roof/ Loft Conversion
A loft conversion or an attic conversion is the process of transforming an empty attic space or loft into a functional room, typically used as a bedroom, office space, a gym, or storage space. It usually involves constructing two dormers – one over the roof of the main house and a second above the rear extension. In the majority of cases, the second dormer will be constructed above what is usually the existing kitchen or bathroom.
Roof Velux Windows
A roof Velux window is an outward opening window that is incorporated as part of the design of a roof. Often confused with a skylight, a roof window differs in a few basic ways. A roof window is often a good option when there is a desire to allow both light and fresh air into the space.
Roof Dormer Windows
A dormer is a roofed structure, often containing a window, that projects vertically beyond the plane of a pitched roof. A dormer window (also called dormer) is a form of roof window. Dormers are commonly used to increase the usable space in a loft.
Roofing is the material of which a roof is composed of. These are cost efficient and durable made with a base mat of wood fiber, cellulose, paper or some other material saturated with asphalt so it is waterproof. A top coating of adhesive asphalt will be applied and ceramic granules embedded into the shingles.
Roof Structural Works
A Roof Structure generally comprises a system of structural members designed to support the roof build-up – i.e the materials that provide water tightness and thermal and acoustic insulation to the building below. Roof construction is the framing and roof covering which is found on most detached houses in cold and temperate climates. Such roofs are built with mostly timber, take a number of different shapes, and are covered with a variety of materials. We offer comprehensive roof repair services. This ranges from simple repairs to complete new roofs. We can provide free reports / surveys & quotes based on inspections making use of photographic surveys from poles or via direct access.
We are still working and quoting throughout this period using safe social distancing advice. We can quote from existing surveys or from photos or virtual guided tour if preferred. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
