Traditional rooftops are dominated by steep roofs. As in other industries, everything is done changed, and certain structures appear periodically as fast as they disappear when other solutions are replaced. Some types of roofs are subject to some regulations or similar requirements, such as heavy snow. In our homes there are gables, hinges, lowered ceilings, polished lofts, pillars, columns and roofs of the tower, but the last mentioned roof type is rarely found in residential construction. The type of roof and its surface are transferred directly to the beam quality.
The structure of the roof depends on:
- size of the building
- roof angle
- type of coverage
- the wind area
- snowy zone
Carpenters, who are working in the grid preparation, usually use coniferous wood. These types of wood have the appropriate mechanical properties and are relatively inexpensive. Wood in the grate must be adequately dry and impregnated against weather conditions, pests, molds and fire protection. The quality of the impregnation can be checked by cutting the beam pieces.
When selecting a wooden grid, it should be borne in mind that the beam should not have many knots. Treating wood on the grain is not a problem for care. This is a natural process associated with drying the raw material and in no way affecting the strength of the structural beams.
The linings provide an aesthetic end of the roof and protect the building mostly from unfavorable weather conditions. In theory, there are natural and artificial lining, but in practice in the single building there is only one plastic cover. An example of a natural cover is straw with tar or trowel soaked with water and mud, which is mostly used in stylized buildings such as restaurants or hotels. Plastic coatings are achieved thanks to their functionality, safety and value.
Coverage is a very cost-effective solution. The most commonly used steel sheets are sometimes plastic coated. Because of the cost, the traditional copper panel is used less frequently. The trapezoidal sheet and tile, which imitates the look of the tiles, has lately been very popular. Bituminous shingles are made of asphalted filament strips that are cut into different geometric shapes and applied to lime roofs. It is recommended to cover the roofs of a complex structure or when they are steep and broken.
Tar is an inexpensive coating that can be quickly fixed. Currently, it is mainly used in construction houses and agricultural buildings. Regardless of the type of cover the investor decides to set up on the roof of the house under construction, special attention should be paid to the material. All parts of the roof frame require proper treatment and materials to protect the building from water. All material types should be selected by a person who has good knowledge of materials and construction. This may be your local material vendor, or of building materials importer which is suggested by your contractor.
