A new Sarnafil roof updates Scottish home

Roof Assured installer expertise makes an old roof look new again

A new roof was installed  on a domestic property in Fawnspark (Loanstone), near Penicuick, Midlothian. The new roof replaced the old underperforming and unsightly GRP roof and transformed the property from a tired looking 70’s bungalow into a modern looking new build.

The project wasn’t without its challenges including localised, unpredictable weather. As this was a domestic re-roof, the homeowners were living in the property throughout the installation.

As well as beating the weather, time was of the essence. The self adhered membrane reduced time on site but, with a complex specification and a tight time frame, the project installation had to be finely tuned.

Careful design and good workmanship are a feature of a roofing project whether commercial or domestic. All Roof Assured by Sarnafil installers are trained and have suport from tehnicians and their local stockists.

The complexity of the project was further tested with the installation of the decor profile to tie in with the new rooflight on the centre roof.  This has become the focal point when viewing the property from the garden and with a 12-degree pitch there was no room for error.

The project included installing battens and decking, vapour barrier and insulation.  The client has already reported that the added u values, created from the insulation, have already made a huge impact.

Roof safety is always uppermost in any installers mind.  All works were carried out in accordance to current health and safety legislation.
