As part of our standard installation, we get rid of your old roof before work commences. Next we add a layer of breathable felt before the tiles. This provides insulation against the elements. Next we add roof battens on top of the felt and finally add the tiles.
When adding ridge tiles we use a dry ridge installation (no sand or cement) which means your roof is always ventilated.
We always use a fixed scaffold system. We never use towers or ladders for health and safety reasons.
Gemini is a true innovation in roof tile design. With its ‘double cambered’ design, this interlocking concrete tile, gives the appearance of traditional plain tiles when laid.
Because of Gemini’s design, fewer tiles are required to cover the same area as a conventional double lapped plain tile. This innovative product assists in reducing the build cost, and helps to reduce the environmental impact by reducing the amount of quarried aggregate used, and haulage movement per laid m2.
