Fitting a new roof is a task of both precision and planning. Every building has its unique characteristics, requiring different approaches and materials for a successful installation. To streamline the process and ensure a smooth roofing project, providing your supplier with ample information is key.
1. Provide Comprehensive Details
To begin, ensure you furnish your truss manufacturer with all necessary information regarding materials and roof design. Collaborate with your architect and contractor to discuss specific design elements, the positioning of load-bearing walls, wall plate levels, and the intricacies of exposed trusses.
2. Partner with Reputable Suppliers
It’s imperative to work with roofing contractors who exclusively collaborate with reputable truss manufacturers. Inquire whether they are registered with the Institute for Timber Construction (ITC) to guarantee quality and professionalism.
3. Avoid Hasty Decisions
While you have expectations for timely project completion, remember that roofing projects shouldn’t be rushed. In addition to installation time, factor in lead time for manufacturing processes, including exposed trusses and laminated beams. Discuss expected timelines with your contractor.

4. Deliberate on Colour Choices
Roof tiles come in a wide array of colours. Keep in mind that certain colors may require longer manufacturing times. Plan your project timetable accordingly to prevent unnecessary delays.
5. Prepare Your Site
Before commencing any roofing project, your site must be prepared to receive trusses and coverings. Ensure you have a flat, clean surface and protective coverings for wooden components to shield them from environmental damage.
6. Employ Experienced Professionals
Quality materials and a well-thought-out design are crucial for a successful roofing project. Equally important is your choice of a roofing contractor. Opt for an accredited contractor with the necessary qualifications and a sterling reputation in the industry.
