Roof Replacement

Tiles going on

Originally uploaded by Scott Savage

Today our roof is being replaced. I have uploaded a few photos of the work in progress. Work includes removing the old tiles, removing the old timber battens, the builders jacking up and supporting the roof beams in a few sagging places, putting in pink batt insulation, putting on the sisilation, putting on the new battens, putting in the new valleys, trimming the barge boards to fit the new tiles and finally cutting and laying the new tiles! It feels cooler in here already, and hopefully no leaks! The next thing is to look at fixing up the iron on the back of the roof, but this will involve putting in some more timber in the roof and unfortunately more expense. This year has to be a big year of saving!

    i think the best roofing are ceramic based because it is a very good insulator.
