Roof Carpentry - Home Extension - London Borough of Croydon

Making the most of the last of the good weather the Scriveners Carpentry team have recently finished the roof timber fix for an open plan, single-storey, side extension to a home in Croydon. The roof design was for a double hip, mono-pitch, warm roof, (insulation on top), with side return, up to a flat roof. The construction was to be finished with a GRP system, (by others). The flat roof was to incorporate dome skylights, and openings for three Velux windows were required to the garden facing pitched roof.

Our fixing work included:

  • 150mm rafters at 400mm centres to follow the pitch of the steelwork
  • Plywood on timber furrings to provide a 1:80 fall
  • Openings for Velux and skylight windows
  • UPVC fascia and soffit
  • Provision of 50mm airflow ventilation
  • Installation of insulation
  • Fitting of Skylights
