The ideal choice for all residential roofing projects including extensions and new builds.
If you are thinking of extending upwards in your loft you may well need to consider the roof trusses. Depending on the type of truss, they may need replacing with attic room trusses to accommodate the space for a room whilst still spreading the load of the roof safety.
We can design and install new trusses should they be needed.
You do not normally need to apply for planning permission to re-roof your house or to insert roof lights or skylights as the permitted development rules allow for roof alterations subject to the following limits and conditions:

Any alteration to project no more than 150 millimetres from the existing roof plane.
No alteration to be higher than the highest part of the roof.
Side facing windows to be obscure-glazed; any opening to be 1.7m above the floor.
The permitted development regime for solar panels has different limits on projections and in relation to protected areas.
