Dormer Roof Improvements

« Back


The main aim of this project was to improve a 40 year old flat roof on a dormer extension. It had no insulation and very little fall causing problems with heat escaping and drainage leading to leaks.

First I added coutner battens and 75mm firings to improve the fall of the roof for better water drainage. Then I added 100mm of insulation for heating efficiency and 19mm plywood boards for strength. Three layers of torch on felt and aluminium paint further weatherproofed the roof. It should now last another 40 years with ease.
