How Do We Complete A Roof Lift?

Here is how in just a few days you’ll have a completely new roof.

 Click on a day to see what happens…

Day 1 – Prepare Roof

In advance of day one, scaffolding will have been placed around your building. So on day one we can prepare your roof in readiness, for the new roof going on the very next day.

We start by stripping back your existing roof removing all:

– Guttering
– Softies and Facies
– Ridge & Roof Tiles
– Slats and Roofing Felt
– Loft Insulation

Next we’ll deal with any existing chimney stacks, electrics and plumbing, that need modifying in advance of the new roof installation.

When its all prepared we then place a temporary cover over the roof to keep it water tight until the following day, as sometime we’ll get a little rain…

Day 2 – Install New Roof

Day two is the transformation day, when we take your old roof, and replace it with a brand new, spacious roof.
The day starts with part of the team removing all the remains roof trusses in ready for your new roof to arrive. Then in a production line manner, the rest of the team will then commence to install the new roof trusses, one by one. This is done using a large crane and a lot of man power.

Typically, lunchtime, you’ll see a new roof, on, and ready to to be used. The team will then commence to felt and slat the roof, making it water tight and ready for tiling.

Doesn’t sound much, but the transformation is incredible to watch.

Day 3 Onward – Fit Windows, Add Dormers and Tile

Day three, now moved into completing the re-roof and starting the process of turing it into a bare roof space, into a living space.

Part of the team will be focused on tiling your new roof, making it with weather hardy for decades to come. The rest of the team will be be busy installing your new loft Velux windows, prepare the interior of the new loft space and start any new cables that need building.

Over the course of the next few days, your new roof will be completed, any plumbing and electrics finished. By the end you’ll have a whole new roof, and large space within to turn into a living space of your dreams.
