We have a team of experienced in-house carpenters specialising in timber roof construction.
Every member of a Traditional Cut Roof is individually cut and assembled on site. The overall construction of a traditional cut roof is to ensure that the load of the roof is evenly transmitted to the walls below.
The rafters are the main load bearing elements of the roof. They span from the wall plate to the ridge board, providing a platform for the underlay, battens and tiles. The purlins are supported by struts, which in turn are supported on an internal load bearing wall. The collar ties are used to connect the rafters, preventing them from spreading outwards. The collar ties and hangers are used to improve the overall strength and stability of the roof.
We are able to replace and install new cut roofs, from traditional cut roofs to modern trussed roof rafter construction. Flat roof to pitched roofs with valleys we have the team to cover it all!
