Roof Covering

  • 19/09/2017

Following the installation of the roof trusses, I opened the main roof and built the diminishing trusses from old to new and started on the construction of the valley between the two roofs using a timber valley covered with a GRP trough.

The photo below shows the timber backing with the breather membrane covering prior to the GRP valley being installed.


I decided to put a temporary sheet over the whole roof to stop my joists and trusses getting soaked and warping. This made life easier and more difficult in equal measure.

Truss Installation Timelapse

Here’s the video of my brother and I hauling the trusses up the side of the building and onto the wallplates by use of a long rope and some brute force.

I subsequently added a course of engineering bricks to raise the roof height slightly.
