Sky lights/Velux windows
Sky lights and Velux windows are the ideal solution for providing natural daylight when converting your attic to provide additional living accommodation. Cheaper installation costs due to the less intrusive nature of the building work required to fit sky lights and Velux windows can make them more popular and attractive roof light options. You can often fit a roof light or sky light without needing to apply for planning permission which is effective at reducing the time your building or home improvement project will take to complete.
Roof decorations such as finials can provide an attractive edging to your roof or decorative feature on a porch. The diverse choice in roof finial availability gives you the opportunity to create the perfect finish to the roof of your property whether you choose a terracotta turret roof spire or a dragon, cat or rooster ridge finial. New handmade roof finials can give you the look of a period roof finial at a cheaper price but if you're renovating or refurbishing an old house and want an original roof finial, local reclamation yards usually have a good stock available.
New flat roofs
If you're planning an extension but have a budget and tight deadline, choosing a flat roof rather than a pitched roof can enable the work to be completed cheaper avoiding more expensive labour costs. From ensuring a rise to drain water from your rooftop to fitting roof vents to enable adequate air circulation, our expert roofers can provide advice and competitive quotes so you know you're getting a good deal. Flat roofing is also an ideal space for creating a green roof to offset the carbon emissions of extending your home by attracting beneficial insects, keeping bees to make honey, insulating your home to save energy and encouraging wild flowers which can extract CO2 from the atmosphere.
From concrete plain tiles to natural stone tiles, slating to interlocking tiles, you can leave it to our professional roofers when you need new roof tiles. A range of colours and textures make tiling a flexible option with which you can create and attractive finish to your new roof, and with pitched roofs being more pleasing on the eye and offering better drainage, tiled roofs can also add more value to your home. Lower premiums on house insurance for homes with pitched roofs increase the popularity of tiled roofed properties, and the lower maintenance and longer life span of a tiled roof add to this further.
Green roof installation can be effective at reducing the carbon emissions your home produces. Increasing the number of green roofs could help prevent flooding and drainage problems because plants in a green roof system absorb water falling on your roof as rain. With a green roof you can also enjoy better insulating properties which can keep your home warmer and reduce the cost of your energy bills as a result.
