Slate Roofing Installer Lancashire

A host of shapes, sizes, colours and designs, tiled roofing is a common feature of many homes worldwide and is one of our areas of expertise here at JW Construction.

The main purpose of roof tiles is to keep out the rain, but it also helps that their stylish appearance and overlapping design gives your home an attractive makeover that has become an increasingly common feature on houses both nationwide and worldwide.

Traditionally made from materials such as terracotta and slate, modern materials like concrete and plastic are also used as tiles for roofs and some clay tiles even have a waterproof glaze.

A large number of roof tile shapes have also evolved over the years. These profiles include flat tiles, Roman tiles, S-shaped pantiles, semi-cylindrical barrel tiles, interlocking roof tiles which also give protection from the wind, and vertical block tiles known as antefixes.

Once you’ve chosen your material and design, our team will set to work tiling your roof. The tiles are hung from the roof framework with nails, usually in parallel rows with each row overlapping the row below it to exclude rainwater while covering the nails that hold the row below.

There are also roof tiles for special positions, particularly where the planes of several pitches meet. They include ridge, hip and valley tiles and these can either be bedded and pointed in cement mortar or mechanically fixed.

We are tiled roofing specialists and  know the best procedure for your tiled roof so you don’t need to worry about anything other than choosing the tile best for you.

"Having decided to go ahead with a dormer loft conversion and getting several builders round, JW Construction was the one that stood out to me the most and i was not to be disappointed. Justin designed and got my plans drawn up for the full conversion,which even included steel calculation. The work completed can only be described as exceptional and are an extremely honest and trust worthy company to the fact i handed them the keys to my property. Along the way Justin kept me updated on each stage of the build which puts you at ease. They cleaned up at the end of everyday and even put plastic down to keep the carpets clean. They were quite few added extras along the way which Justin completed for me without any issues and kept the price down to a minimum. I would recommend JW Construction to anyone and if anyone wants to see his work they can contact him and are free to look at the work completed. I would like to say a massive thank you to Justin and his team for a quality job!"

"Justin came highly recommended and proved to be absolutely 100% Honest, reassuringly knowledgeable, committed, friendly,punctual, devoted to the job, and completely organised. (ie....hardly ever on his phone,almost no breaks,or annoying unnecessary trivial trips to suppliers for forgotten materials or tools) etc....The supplier at my local plastic suppliers even commented on Justin as ' one of only a couple of roofers he would be glad to recommend ' ...' 30 years of roofing, and qualified to passing his own work to building inspectors regulations'! Top quality service on a single storey pitched roof with velux, including soffit, facia and guttering......very professional. ..highly recommendable...."
