STEP 1

The first part of the roof construction consisted of the half trusses

being lifted onto the walls and placing them into sets of two to cover the entire house

Heading 3

STEP 2

Once the half trusses have been lifted onto the walls they 

are placed into sets of two so that each pair could be joined to form a single truss and place at a distance of 760 mm

STEP 3

The trusses are kept apart at a distance of 760 mm with

the use of 38 x 50 battens

STEP 4

After the trusses had been placed at an equidistance of 760 mm, the roof is covered with a waterproof membrane to prevent leaks, after which the 38 x 50 battens are added to the top of the trusses at a distance of 350 mm apart.

STEP 5

The interlocking cement tiles are placed onto the 38 x 50 battens and are attached to the battens with 60 mm galvanized roof screws.
