Here’s a few tips on replacing your roof.
When the original roof covering is a lightweight material such as slate, it is important to consider how the roof needs to be strengthened if the new tiles are a heavier material such as concrete.
In many cases this important consideration is overlooked. As a result the integrity of the roof is compromised, the roof timbers will distort and the cost of repairs is significant.
Your surveyor should check all parts of the roof structure and ensure that where the roof covering has been replaced the roof structure has been strengthened correctly.
