Sunderland Roof Construction
Pitched roofs and flat roofs each have their own unique problems and weaknesses:
The main problem with pitched roof is tile slip after heavy winds, ridge tiles can also become loose and need resetting in mortar Bitumen felted flat roofs oxidise and crack with the extremes of temperature and eventually small leaks develop

Loft Rooms »

Loft Conversions - More Living Space By Moving Upwards

Durham Loft Space
Many families are looking upwards to increase their living space by making better use of the loft space as a storage room, child's bedroom or often as a very large master bedroom with built in wardrobes, storage and ensuite shower & dressing room

Dormer Bungalow Roof Conversions

Newcastle Increasing Your Living Space - Single to 2 Storey Conversion
Converting a bungalow to a 2-storey dwelling house by creating a dormer bungalow is a great way to almost double the living space and add value to a property

Sunderland Benefits of Converting a bungalow
The original downstairs bedrooms become reception/dining rooms or can be converted to create a large living room and kitchen-dining area

Solar Heating - Power & Energy From The Sun

Sunderland Solar heating can be an economical addition to modern home heating solutions
Solar energy can be used to heat a reservoir of water to slightly above ambient temeperature; heat pumps and heat exchangers can then extract the energy for cheap hot water and heating

Gateshead Large Energy Storage Tank
The secret to energy storage is in creating a large capacity storage solution with very efficient insulation to reduce energy losses to the surroundings
A small pump and thermostat system will control water flow and minimise energy losses

Flat Roof Repairs

Newcastle Repairing & Replacing Old Felted Roofs
Bitumen felt roofs generally last 10 to 20 years befor needing reoval and replacing

Flat to Pitched Roof Conversion

Gateshead Add space and keep out the weather with a pitched or lean-to roof

Roofing Services - Weatherproofing

Durham Gutters & Downcomers
Try to keep your roof, gutters and downcomers in a good condition to prevent rain from penetrating the waterproof skin of your home

Darlington Moss & Algae
Gutters and downcomers should allow rain water to drain away efficiently; removing excess water away from your roof and walls. Breaks and blockages can cause areas of moss/algae growth on walls that may eventually lead to penetrating dampness.

Middlesbrough Defective Weatherproofing
Defective weatherproofing allows rainwater ingress that can lead to expensive remedial work to the structural timbers (wet-rot) and any decorative wall, floor and ceiling finishes, not designed for damp conditions.

Replacing Roof & Ridge Tiles
Replace or repair damaged roof tiles, ridge tiles or flat roof coverings as soon as possible to minimise the damage caused by rain ingress.

Lead, Copper and Zinc Roofs

Newcastle Metal Roof Repairs & New roofs
Once a metal roof has a thin coating of surface oxidation or patina it can normally resist the effects of the elements for many years; eventually due to mechanical damage or corrosion the metal roof covering will need minor repairs or occasionally replacing

Low Fell Lead Flashing
Mortar joints can eventually work loose, differential thermal movement can slowly create a weakness for water penetration past the lead flashing and wind can also lift tiles to pull the flasshing loose: most often the lead flashing can be re-seated and the mortar repointed to create a lasting weatherseal

Asbestos Roof Removal & Replacement

Gateshead Asbestos cement tiles and corrugated roof panels
Asbestos roof removal is a specialised undertaking and requires strict adherance to health and safety protocols to ensure workmen and residents are fully protected from the harmful asbestos fibres - Estimates for removing and replacing an asbestos roof can be requested using our enquiry form

Sunderland Asbestos Testing and Identification
Normally small samples are taken and the embedded fibres identified using polarised microscopy to determine if the fibres are asbestos and if so; the type of asbestos present

Newcastle Types of Asbestos
The most commonly used asbestos is Chrysotile; a white fibrous form of magnesium silicate; other forms include:Amosite,Crocidolite, Anthophyllite, Tremolite and Actinolite

Room in Roof (RIR) Trussed Rafters

Newcastle Loft/Attic Rooms
Compared to conventional roof trusses; room in roof trusses can add significantly more living space by opening up the loft-attic area

Darlington Open Roof Void
Room in Roof trusses build in a central void directly below the roof apex, creating space for a loft room and can span from the front to rear wall

Middlesbrough Spacious Open Plan Rooms
This means that the rooms below the loft area do not need to provide load bearing support and the lower floor can be open plan to allow much larger room sizes
