Sooner or later, we are faced with the need for complete or partial roof reconstruction. The most common reasons are the dilapidation of the roofing or roof structure (rotting of various layers, leaks), poorly performed earlier installation, which entailed various defects (roof deflection), or simply aesthetic aging of the roofing material (desire to renew the roofing). In any case, it is not worth postponing repairs, you just need to approach this process with the maximum degree of responsibility. Moreover, now is the time to do the arrangement and repair.
Reconstruction in 4 stages
Let's say you decide to carry out reconstruction in order to update the roof, give it individuality, and make your house stand out from dozens of others. In this case, we advise you to turn to the now fashionable flexible tile. Performance properties, competitive price and material quality make this type of roofing more and more popular. For our house, we chose RUFLEX flexible shingles from the Finnish Katepal OY plant. The tile of this brand suits us in all respects. It is not susceptible to corrosion, decay and delamination, absolutely hermetic, resistant to temperature extremes from -45 ° C to +110 ° C. The use of high quality raw materials in the production of RUFLEX tiles makes them practically ideal material for the construction and reconstruction of roofs. The most important advantage that distinguishes RUFLEX from competitors is the ability to mount it like in summer,and in winter. With the most flexible tiles, there will be no problems during repair, they are very easy to install and do not require the use of special tools. The whole secret is in competent styling.
1. It all starts with removing the old coating. When reconstructing, it is important to correctly assess the condition of the lathing. If the stepped lathing has not rotted and is able to withstand the loads of the roof, then additional elements (lining carpets, plywood) and the roofing are laid next.
2. A continuous sheathing made of moisture-resistant plywood (FSF) or OSB (oriented strand board) is laid on a stepped crate: these materials are more resistant to moisture and stress than others.
3. Next, a lining carpet is laid, which levels the overall surface of the roof and waterproofs it.
4. Finally, the shingles are installed. Its inner side has a continuous self-adhesive layer. The lower section is glued to the carpet, and the upper part of the shingle is fixed with nails. Moreover, these nails are closed with the following tile petals. As a result, you get a continuous coverage without joints and cracks.
Don't skimp on quality
If the reconstruction takes place due to the dilapidated roof, then the repair requires a more professional approach. First you need to determine who will carry out the reconstruction of the roof. You can turn to specialists or use the services of "free" workers. In the second case, the chances of a well-done job are greatly reduced. Therefore, the only correct decision on your part will be to turn to professionals. Only qualified specialists with extensive experience in this field will advise you on quality materials and provide guarantees for all the work done. Not so long ago, the main argument of the customer when choosing the performers and producers of the material was the price. Over time, the opinion has changed and now the quality of the goods and the provision of guarantees for work are appreciated first of all.It is better to pay once for high-quality work and enjoy a reliable and beautiful roof for many years than to pay the labor of unskilled workers and soon return to the question of repairs again. In construction, the saying "The miser pays twice" has taken root.
Special case: attic insulation
For example, let's say you decide to make an attic space residential. First of all, the specialist will determine what kind of additional work needs to be done, based on your wishes and design capabilities. All work will begin by removing the old roofing, waterproofing and checking the existing lathing for its suitability and maintaining the bearing capacity of the future structure. If everything is in order and it is not necessary to change or additionally strengthen it, then the next steps will be - insulation, waterproofing of the attic, organizing the ventilation space, laying the roofing. In other words, the creation of a "roofing pie".
It is important to know
It should be noted that most often "free" workers are cautious about reconstructing the roof: it is much safer for them to re-install the roof. This is due to the fact that companies that professionally specialize in the installation of roofing, after the repair work, give a written guarantee for their work. If there is a risk that the previous installation was performed in bad faith, or the layers of the "roofing pie" were laid by non-specialists, then the responsibility for the repair of such a roof increases, and temporary workers may refuse to bear it.
Therefore, you should beware of accidental crews during roof reconstruction!
