The Roof Team
Ed Chris Walter Theo James Jason
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
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
The trusses are kept apart at a distance of 760 mm with
the use of 38 x 50 battens
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.
The interlocking cement tiles are placed onto the 38 x 50 battens and are attached to the battens with 60 mm galvanized roof screws.
