If you’re looking at building a new home, the roof is both a design issue and a cost issue. The good news for new home builders is that modern roofing is very versatile and can be adapted to any kind of design.
Thanks to CAD technology, better roofing materials, and advanced building techniques, you can have your dream home with a fabulous roof. The major issues for roofing, in fact, are mainly design issues. We have a few tips for you.
Roofs and Building Design
Roof designs come in quite literally all shapes and sizes. Types of roofing, design considerations, and presentation are very much part of this mix. If you’ve seen some of the latest architectural designs coming on the market, we have some good news for you. The elegant, sharp-looking roofs on these buildings are quite accessible and affordable.
These “designer” roofs are the result of a combination of good design, excellent tile quality, and best practice modern roofing. If you’re at the planning stage of your new build, you can include this type of roofing in your new home.
Even if you’re looking at multiple roofs, like a major house roof with separate roofs for home design features, it’s no problem. It’s very easy to manage your roofing selection, as described below.
Deciding on Your Roofing
A few basic facts about roofing:
- At the design stage, you can select your tiles and roof appearance using CAD displays to find the right look for your new home
- Your architect or designer will be able to help you with technical specifications for your roof
- You can also cost your roofing in advance, using the services of your professional roofing contractors
Sound good? That’s how easy it is to get exactly the roof you want for your new home.
Talk to Professional Roofers about Your Roofing Needs
When you’re building a new home, you don’t want any “grey areas” about the building process. It is strongly recommended to talk to professional roofers regarding your needs. They will be able to advise you about your roofing, and provide clarification regarding types of tiles and the essential roofing interior work. They can help you with insulation, guttering, sarking, flashings, seals, and all the technical information you need.
Like all professional tradespeople, roofers are a goldmine of information. They will be able to give you a reliable estimate of roofing costs. They can also help with expert advice about types of roofing and roofing choices.
(Tip – It’s a good idea to put your roofing contractor in touch with your architect. They can discuss design and technical issues before you commence building or make financial commitments.)
