Hello! This is Episode 270. In it, I’m going to share 5 key points to know about your roof design.

And remember, whilst your home is lines on a page, it’s actually not too late to make changes that will fix it, improve it, and ensure it’s a great quality home that improves your lifestyle and makes the aspirations, effort, time and money you’re investing in it all worthwhile.

I’ll be taking you through 5 key points to consider when it comes to your roof design and construction, and to be discussing with your team. And the earlier you can discuss this, the better, because as you’ll hear, your roof design is best considered early in your design process, in order to get it right.

The roof design has the capacity to completely change the look of your home. And it also needs to be detailed and constructed so it sheds water appropriately, makes maintenance more straightforward for you, and doesn’t cause issues with condensation within the roof structure, keeping roof framing and insulation damp and riddled with mould.

Many homeowners don’t really think about their ideal roof design. And they also don’t necessarily know how to describe it, the shape of it, or the specifications for it. 

In this whole process, a lot is left to chance, with a lot of assumptions that a builder will appropriately detail and construct it. And yet, so many parts of the industry don’t appropriately detail and construct the roof, creating long term headaches, home degradation and financial issues for homeowners.
