Frequently Asked Questions

We are sure you will have many questions to ask before you invest in a replacement roof so to help you we have put together some of the questions we are most frequently asked by our customers.

 

If you should have any other questions that aren't covered below or if you would like further information about anything that is please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be only to happy to provide you with the answers.

How long will it take to install my roof?

On average it takes approximately 7 days for us to install a roof and complete the internal finishes. This obviously depends on the size of the roof and the scope of internal works required. We would be able to give you more accurate timescales after visiting your property and assessing your individual requirements.

Do I need Building Regulations?

We ensure that all of our roofs meets the technical guidance set out in the LABC's 'Guidance on Adding Solid Roofs to Conservatories and Porches attached to Dwellings' and comply with current building regulations criteria in order to ensure your safety and to save you any unneccessary costs in the future.

 

Where neccessary we will liase with your LABC on your behalf and you will be provided with a certificate from Building Control upon completion of your roof so you can rest assured that your new roof meets all the current criteria, is thermally efficient, structurally sound and you won't have any issues when you come to sell your home in the future.

 

As with any building work you undertake within your home we would always suggest contacting your LABC before you begin making any changes for their guidance and for your own peace of mind.

What is a U-value?

A U-value is a value given to element such as a wall, door, window or roof as a guide to how thermally efficient that particular element is. The lower the U-value the better the element is as a heat insulator and therfore the less heat it allows to escape.

 

Current building regulations guidance states that your replacement roof must provide a maximum U-value of 0.18W/m2 and we ensure that all of our roofs at least achieve this if not exceed it.
