Choosing the right design when it comes to your roof is of great importance. Although rather underestimated, roofs play an imperative roll in the safety and overall structural capacity of your house or premises which means choosing the right roof needs to be done properly and with the utmost care and concern. It is for this exact reason that we at Dezzo Roofing have identified 3 top tips or considerations for roof design and choosing your new roof.
Along with the design and implementation of a new roof comes cost.
Designing and installing a new roof is not always cheap. It is important to identify budget before hand as this will ultimately effect the design of your roof as well as the materials and installation utilised.
Some materials may cost more than others which means understanding your house, your location as well as your budget are key components to figure out before making decisions on the type of material or design you are going to use and install. These considerations will influence your decision in the right direction and we are certain that determining your budget is the first step to making the right decision…
Flat roofs and sloped roofs will both demand a variety of different surfaces depending on the shape and gradient of the roof itself. It is crucial that before choosing the design of your roof you look at the shapes and angles of your house as well as the location of your house as this will enable you to determine whether or not a flat roof is more suitable to your specific need or whether a sloped roof is more justifiable. For example, if you are exposed to a lot of rainfall, then a flat roof is not advisable as the water will collect and cause rot and leaks which creates unnecessary added costs.
Safety and weather conditions
We cannot stress this enough, the safety of the materials you are utilising and the safety of the surface is a crucial aspect to consider before choosing your new roof design.
A roof is the one component of your house or premises that is protecting you against outside weather conditions. By carefully paying attention to the location of your house or premises; and the weather conditions that are identifiable in your location you are better able to identify with certain materials that will be used to build your roof and which of these will work best under these conditions.
It is also important to note that, although quite sturdy, roofs need to be maintained, cleaned and inspected on a regular basis so utilising and identifying with a material that is strong, durable, and long-lasting; and within your budget is always best.
