New Details

We are excited to publish the second half of our slate roof details set. The set continues our exploration of traditional slate roof construction, looking at how different junctions are detailed using traditional lead, to complement these, we then demonstrate alternative options. All the roof details are based on a cold roof construction with insulation at ceiling level. These details would be useful for those looking to improve and existing structure or for extension projects where you are looking to match the existing style. The set consists of:

  • Gable / verge detail to cavity wall with traditional slate roof
  • Typical party wall / masonry cavity wall to lean to abutment detail with traditional slate roof
  • Typical party wall / masonry cavity wall to sloped roof abutment detail with traditional slate roof
  • Typical party wall / masonry cavity wall to sloped roof abutment detail with coping
  • Typical mono pitch ridge to cavity wall detail with traditional slate roof
  • Back gutter party wall / cavity wall to pitched roof detail

In December we published a technical guide U-Values – do we need 150mm cavities? This article looks at the different u-value requirements for walls, whether that’s new build or extension or upgrades. We ask if 150mm cavity is the only way to achieve the required u-values. Spoiler alert, there may just be more than one way.
