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

Replacing Old Roofs Reading

Reading Your old roof As good as new: Reading
By removing and replacing your existing roof tiles or slates you can have a roof that's as good as new with new lead flashing and weather seals

Reading Ridge Tiles
Your old ridge tiles can be removed, cleaned of old mortar and dirt before being re-seated in fresh mortar
Reading Roof Lining
When carrying out a major roof refurbishment that requires removing all the old tiles it's a great time to fit a felt weathershield layer for secondary protection: Many old roofs will just rely on the slates or tiles
Reading Building Salvage
Many places can supply salvaged tiles and slates to replace damaged tiles or slates and get a better colour match when re-fixing your existing roof
Reading Roof Stripping Reading
Even after 40 or 50 years of exposure to the elements; most roofing slates or roof tiles will be in good condition even if the nails and fixings are starting to fail and the roof has to be removed and re-fitted
Reading Re-Using Tiles and Slates
By carefully removing the old roof; it's possible to keep most of the roofing materials and save thousands on the cost of a new roof

Solar Energy - Heating

Reading Solar heating can be an economical addition to modern home heating solutions
Solar energy can be captured using roof mounted solar panels and used to heat a reservoir of water to slightly above ambient temperature; heat pumps and heat exchangers can then extract the energy for cheap hot water and heating
Reading 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
Reading Heat Pump & Thermostat
A small pump and thermostat system will control water flow and minimise energy losses

Flat Roofs: Repairs Reading

Reading Patching Felt Roofs
Usually, isolated roof areas may blister and crack causing localised leaking that can be patched for a long lasting repair
Reading Flat Roof Flashings
When a flat roof is in contact with a building structure, then instead of the roof overlapping the edge of the building; for a water tight seal, it is sealed by connecting it to the adjacent building structure with lead or bitumen flashing: With time this can work loose and allow water to penetrate the edge seal
Reading Bitumen Felt Roofs
Bitumen felt roofs generally last 10 to 20 years before needing removal and replacing
