People may choose to have a new pitched roof for a number of different reasons. It may be you want an alternative to a flat roof or overhaul the current roof you have already.
Here are some things to consider if you want to get a new pitched roof installed in your Marske home (or if you are based around the local area).
Why it’s important
There is a reason why people use the term “a roof over your head” as significant. This is an important part of your home and usually the first defence for any number of environmental hazards.
A lot of people choose pitched roofs because of the aesthetic quality. There are a number of options, whether they are two-sided slopes or more complicated shapes with additional hips and valleys incorporated into the design.
You can further add to the design with the use of slates, allowing for different shapes and sizes.
Pitched roofs benefit from higher thermal insulation. This is because pitched roofs tend to be around 10 to 15 per cent more compact than a flat roof design. The reason that this type of roof offers better insulation is due to limiting the amount of surface that gets exposed to the exterior.
Improved insulation also tends to work in conjunction with energy savings. It is estimated that a pitched roof allows for more natural ventilation.
With 25 to 35 per cent loss of energy occurring due to the building envelope, this better ventilation allows for superior energy preservation.
The triangular shape (combined with tough slating material such as natural slate) makes it more stable, stronger and better suited to water drainage. With the right tiles, your roof can also become tougher, waterproof and fire-resistant.
Pitched roofs require less maintenance on drainage. In fact, they tend to require less repairs in general. Natural slate is especially effective for this, as the material has a life expectancy of over 100 years and does not need to be maintained.
It may sound strange but pitched roofs but can also be better for the environment. It is easier to redirect rainwater, which can then be reused, thus reducing wasted water in your household.
You can also use sustainable materials for your roofing tiles, while you can integrate solar panels into the design, further adding to the green credentials of your home.
