Chris Smith Building & Roofing

Customer - Roughly       Location - Standish    Job - New Roof

The existing roof was undulating and needed to be srtaightened up in order to make it dead level, I could have just tiled over it like everyone else, but thats not my style. I also wanted to make the roof "zero maintenance" for the customer by using the latest dry system materials (no need for cement). Its a little more expensive, but cheaper in the long run as your ridge tiles & valleys will never need re-pointing.

Before - with wonky ridge

After - all straightend out

Replacing facia & gutters

Tiles coming off

This is whats under your tiles & the reason why roof painting is a waste of money

Packing up the rafters to get the roof dead level took a while!

Ply support trim going in to support the drip felt, the plastic ones are rubbish

Heavy drip felt going in 

I always use BAA approved membrane, if your having a roof done, this is a MUST.

Treated battens & a breathable membrane laid over heavy tarred drip felt.
