Roof’s

We hand cut & pitch the multitude of the roof’s we work on, either for extensions or loft conversions, our team is exceptionally experienced & competent at bespoke roof construction.

With a lot of loft conversions, we find the existing roof is a trussed roof. This means removing the existing roof or part of it and constructing a new one by hand and tying it in to the existing trusses.

Quite a few single storey extensions have a flat roof, there are two main types:

  • A cold roof – which has the insulation inside the woodwork and ventilation in the eaves.
  • A warm roof – which has the insulation on top of the woodwork.

The warm roof is taller generally by the depth of insulation, about 6 inches, sometimes this can have a bearing aesthetically, on the look you are trying to achieve on the outside of the property, or on the height at the boundary line if you have a close neighbouring property and need to stay below the 3 metre height mark.

Eaves

We offer a traditional service in quality wooden eaves details, with pressure treated tanalised timber, staining and sealing against the weather, giving you a beautiful lasting natural detail, we can also give you the option of painting instead of wood staining if you prefer.

We do however, fit Upvc eaves also.
