Some projects may need a structural engineer to examine the buildings stability, strength and rigidity.
They will then explain what materials will be best on the roof and building to make it as safe as possible.
We work with some of the best structural engineers in East Anglia, who have experience on the most complex buildings.
Should your job require the advice of a structural engineer we are able to sort out site visits, be there every step of the way and help you make the best decision for your home or building.
Since 1992, it has been a legal requirement that a building regulations application is made for any roof re-covering project.
This means, from a structural perspective, if existing roof tiles are to be replaced with heavier material, then you would need a full structural appraisal.
In cases where a structured appraisal is not performed, your property could face serious and expensive repercussions in the future. This is because, without the facts checked and the structure looked at, a new roof structure could be distorted or weakened, which would cause the external roof to sag leading to possible damage to internal members.
Our structural engineers have experience working on new builds, listed properties, stately homes, halls, manors, churches, schools, holiday homes, cottages and work for private property owners, landlords, and contractors whether the job is a new build, rebuild, repair work, insurance work or emergency work.
Depending on the results, the structural engineer’s report will explain which materials will work for your roof.
Once determined we can show you your options in our new showroom, whether slate, tile or hard metals we know what works best.
