An older roof is more likely to need to be rebuilt due to deteriorating with age.
However, even newer roofs occasionally need to be rebuilt sooner than anticipated whether due to harsh weather conditions, wrong materials being used, or structurally built wrong, therefore, it is important to design and plan.
The idea of building a new roof and considering all aspects can be daunting, but, with our experience and expertise, you have nothing to worry about.
Before starting any new roofing construction or works, our first step is to make sure whatever we plan to do is going to be structurally safe.
Our structural engineer has worked with the most complex buildings and roofing systems, which means he is the best man to help you decide on the right materials to ensure your roof is safe and secure.
Next, our architects will design your roof using these ideas whilst keeping in mind the structural ability.
With so many aspects and details going into designing a roof, our showroom will help you decide what materials you would like on your roof to make it as aesthetically pleasing as possible.
We carry out all of our own carpentry work as well as the roofing works to the outside of the building.
Over the years we have completed many roof re-builds and repair projects on both listed buildings and newer properties we have also fully re-built roofs that have been in a state of collapse.
When it comes to installing a new roof, the cost can really depend on the size, style and materials.
Bear in mind that your estimate cost will involve a breakdown of prices for the materials and the labour included.
Obviously, the price to install a new roof will vary depending on style, size and materials. The average cost to replace the roof of a typical British house is often in affordable price range, with the owner being in control of the materials they use.
How to pay for a new roof:
Here at ELC, we like to work and help households of all different budgets. Help covering the payment for your new roof can be covered by insurance, grants, loans (personal or home equity).
How much value does a new roof add to the house?
Can you believe that roofs can provide homeowners with up to 60% return on investment?
This means that roofs can be a great investment for your home as it can increase its value by thousands of pounds.
A survey conducted by homeadvisor.com found that homeowners who installed a new could expect to recover an average of 62.9% of their initial installation costs as the value of their home had increased.
Generally, most roofs can last as long as 25 years and will not need replacing in your lifetime.
However, the lifespan of the roof will entirely depend on what material you choose and the weather conditions your local area is usually accustomed to.
For homes, for example, that are constantly being pelted with hail, the roof will not last as long as a roof that is rained on every so often.
