#PerfectRoof Step 2: Reliable Design Expertise

Good roofing design reduces risk and extends the lifespan of your roof; but it isn’t simple and it needs careful co-ordination. Be it a simple re-roof of an existing building or an inhabited roof with renewables, making the wrong design decisions can be costly, and the architect can be left carrying the can.

#PerfectRoof Step 2: Get Reliable Design Expertise from One Source

Step 2Many manufacturers provide design and specification services for their products, but if they are not taking responsibility for the whole roof there is a risk of clashes between their designs and other manufacturers, making the whole process very messy. This is where details can get botched, and you may end up with one part of the roof interfering with another, PV panels puncturing the membrane or untidy detailing making the roof look unsightly and more prone to failure.

Don’t rely on several sources of design input from individual manufacturers. Make sure the roof is designed, specified and co-ordinated from the deck up by a single PI insured designer who takes the risk and joins the dots for you.
