ROOF CONSTRUCTION

Different materials for roof construction, such as concrete, terracotta, metal or other materials may be selected depending on the client's needs, design of the structure, and local planning rules and regulations.

Roofs of cottages are made either from:

  1. Concrete (with membrane sealants);
  2. Concrete or Terracotta tiles on a timber or steel frame. Most roofs are framed with trusses; or,
  3. Metal cladding on timber or steel trusses
