Roofing Services in Glasgow & Edinburgh: What type of roofing services do I need?
House and properties in Glasgow Southside can differ from Morningside or Leith.
We understand that each roof presents a different challenge. From the roof’s pitch to the drainage, we can provide an accurate on-site inspection and a realistic quotation for your new roof or your roof repair.
We provide the following roofing services:
1. Roof Tiles
Not only do your tiles or slates have to perform the role of creating a watertight barrier, which keeps your property dry, but they need to look great from installation, too.
Remember, that picking clay tile, slate or even stone roofing could be decided by the local planning authority. Your home may need to be in keeping with other properties. Before giving the go ahead, they may even need to approve your samples.
2. Profile & Finish
At Carnegie Contracts, we believe that the tile finish is critical to the overall look of your home. In Glasgow Edinburgh, sand-faced tiles are more popular. Smooth-faced feature in Bishopbriggs or Glasgow West End.
Sandfaced finishes create a rustic look but can weather quicker. Smooth-faced finishes provide a slippery surface which helps prevent moss from growing and surface run-off.
3. Different Roof Profiles
Different roof profiles are standard throughout the country. With plain tiles most common. S-shaped pantiles are the most visible in the Scotland. However, in some parts of Glasgow, Roman tiles are a common sight. Whatever type of tile you choose for your home, it’s important to either stick with plain tiles or a look common to your area.
