Having worked as professional roofers for over 30 years, we have the experience and the necessary expertise to undertake slating and tiling work in Cornwall and the South West – which is both a traditional and popular method of covering pitched and vertical panels.
Slate and tiling is both a traditional and popular method of providing a waterproof outer layer to pitched and vertical roofs. Any roof with a 15° or greater roof pitch is defined as a pitched or sloped. A typical roof pitch in the UK for a traditional style house will be 40°- 50° but can go up to 70° depending on the period of which it was built and what is considered to be aesthetically pleasing to the architect.
The roof is usually designed by the architect and there are several variations of roof designs but the two basic shapes that most roofs use in their designs are gable and hip, a complex roof design can incorporate both these elements. Regardless of the design a typical pitched roof is made up of 4 elements: Wooden joists which support the weight of the roof; A breathable membrane to reduce wind up-lift and offers secondary protection to any water ingress.
