The latest government initiatives aimed at reducing carbon emissions in buildings can have a direct and significant impact on the risk of condensation. For example, tighter building envelopes with enhanced insulation and airtightness are effective in reducing heat loss and energy consumption, but they can also trap moisture inside buildings. Also, the adoption of high-efficiency heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, whilst contributing to energy savings, may alter the temperature and humidity dynamics within buildings, especially if the system is poorly balanced or incorre ..read more

In these tough economic times money is tighter than ever and getting a roof right first time has never been more important.  If a contractor must go back to rectify problems, most, if not all the profit made on a job may be lost; in some cases, it may result in the contractor not being paid at all.  So, getting it right first time is crucial. Design The successful installation of a good roof starts with design.  A roof should be designed with the type of roof covering in mind, for example slates, plain tiles, interlocking tiles, etc.  But, beware of the risks that product s ..read more

We are proud to share these photographs from a site in Herefordshire where the roof was finished using our All-in-One RealRidge. The natural slate ridge was ordered with a variety of preformed angles to fit the complex roof design perfectly, with block ends and hip ends to add the finishing touch. The contractor described the finished roof as an “infinity”, as the high-performance features and fixings are hidden, resulting in a clean transition from the slate roof to the ridge. Due to high demand, we are proud to announce the addition of a 75° Slate Ridge to our standard range of ridge and hip ..read more

The recent cold weather has made condensation issues in the home, particularly in the roof space, more obvious. This article explains why there is condensation in the roof space and what can be done about it. Moisture that is generated in the home can manifest in two ways. Visible condensation/moisture can be seen, for example, on the inside of a bathroom window. Invisible interstitial condensation occurs in the fabric of the building, the result of which can sometimes be seen as black mould. Condensation moisture should not be confused with a leak or water ingress that is often distinguished ..read more

by ERoofing

Lead flashing is a material used to waterproof roof areas where joints or transitions exist. Over time, exposure to moisture can cause the buildup of lead carbonate, a white, powdery substance, which can result in unsightly marks on the roof and flashing.  To prevent this, patination oil can be applied to the flashing as a final step in the installation process. This oil is a barrier to protect the lead flashing from water and should be applied to a clean, dry surface. Cleaning Lead Flashing The lead may have been installed some time ago and requires more than just cleaning. Sma ..read more

It is estimated that 40% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK comes from buildings, with 14% of this coming from the housing stock of 28 million homes.  Heating and powering buildings currently accounts for 40% of the UK’s total energy consumption. In June this year, changes to Building Regulations will come into effect which will mean that new homes in England must produce around 30% less net carbon emissions and commercial buildings such as offices and shops around 27% less emissions.  Looking even further ahead, in 2025, the introduction of the Future Homes and Buildings Standard ..read more
