Roofteq adds natural light to your home

Roofteq brings you – New VELUX products for 2011

Over 60 years ago VELUX started making the world’s leading roof windows. And they’re still going strong today – with innovation and sustainability at the heart of what they do.

VELUX say their windows keep heat loss to a minimum. They make the most of solar thermal gain and maximise natural daylight and fresh air. They also say that using their windows on their own or together with their solar hot water systems will help your customers reduce their fuel bills and CO2 emissions.

All sounds pretty straightforward and it seems their aim for the future is simple too: to continue to help create healthy buildings that are great places to live while offering real value for money.

So we know they’re innovators but what’s new for 2011?

Bring the sunshine in with the VELUX award winning Sun Tunnel by Lovegrove

Amaze your customers by bringing in natural light where they never thought it could reach

This innovative product has been revamped in partnership with the internationally acclaimed designer Ross Lovegrove to create a new look for the interior element of the existing VELUX Sun Tunnel.

Launched in 2005 the Sun Tunnel brings natural light into even the darkest and most isolated spaces through a specially designed tunnel from roof to ceiling. The new add-on acts as a daylight lamp that uses the sun as a bulb. This offers previously dark rooms a beautiful natural light reflectance while allowing the user to adjust the spread of the light.

The Quote and How Much Will It Cost Me???

What Next? …….Well we provide;

  • An honest assessment of your roofs condition and highlight any foreseen problematic areas.

Your Investment – Costs and Payment

Roofteq is realistic, we understand that most people find the thought of roof repairs or renewals daunting and worry about all the associated costs involved

Roofteq being a very fair and realistic company understand this and want to point out it may not cost as much as you think. In many cases the big job may be a case of a few simple repairs, which will eradicate the problem, however should the job be larger and for example you do need a new roof and money is an issue then we maybe able to delay the work with spot repairs  until such time as you have organised the necessary finance.

There are however some basics to remember, it is false economy if your roof is leaking, and you don’t do anything about it, it will almost certainly cost you more in the long term if the leak isn’t repaired quickly.

Whatever the decision is, before we commence any works, we will agree with you all costs and payment terms before starting the job. We will not ask for any up-front payment to cover the cost of materials, although we may request stage payments throughout the course of the project (dependent on project size and prior customer agreement) with the balance due on completion.

Problems With – Fascia, Soffits and Guttering – No Problem!

Fascia, Soffits and Guttering

Fascia, Soffits and Guttering

The Benefits of UPVC

Any home’s exterior appearance can be dramatically transformed with the use of new UPVC fascia, soffits and guttering. You will also gain the following benefits:

  • Maintenance free
  • No rotting wood
  • No peeling paint
  • A unique appearance to suit your home/building

Product Specification

UPVC Fascia, barge boards and soffits are constructed using Summit PVC-UE profiles. Summit never needs painting, will not rot, flake, peel or crack and is resistant to pollution and moisture. It represents a long term practical solution to the increasing costs of maintenance combining the flexibility and aesthetic qualities of timber with the durability of PVC.

Summit Celluar PVC-UE is manufactured using the latest technology where the materials consist of a foamed core with a tough outer skin specially formulated to provide lightweight and robust profiles with unsurpassed maintenance-free properties.

Fascia, Soffit and Guttering Installation

Fascia boards and soffits are fixed in accordance with standardised practice. All boards are fixed using plastic-headed A4 stainless steel nails of an appropriate length and secured to rafter feet, noggins and gable ladders. Old fascias, bargeboards and soffits will be removed (unless capping work required), existing timber rafters and supports will be inspected and any rotten timber will be brought to your attention and replacement costs will be discussed, on approval the timber will be replaced with new treated softwood. Sarking (eaves) felt will be examined and if damaged brought to your attention for inspection and replacement options will be discussed. Eaves box ends are constructed and shaped to match the appropriate roof pitch.

Matching fascia/soffit joints and corner mouldings/trims are cut to suit. The mouldings/trims are fixed onto one plank end using solvent adhesive while the subsequent board is engaged in the cover by push fit, leaving a 5mm expansion gap between the boards. Bargeboards/gable ridge joints are made using an appropriate ridge joint with boards cut to the required angle. Internal corners are secured over fascia ends by using silicone adhesive.

Once the fascia board is installed, gutter brackets are fixed with stainless steel screws onto the fascia board. All down pipes are screw fixed to brickwork and joined to the appropriate soak aways or as per originally installed.

Cover Board Installation

Installation of cover Fascia/Soffit boards over the existing timber is only advised if the existing timber fascia/soffits are in good condition. The UPVC cover fascia boards are covered by the same guarantees but installation reduces the risk of additional tile repairs.
