Bexley

Bexley is an area of south-east London in England. It forms part of the London Borough of Bexley. It is situated around 13 miles (21 km) southeast of Charing Cross. It was an ancient parish inside the county of Kent. As part of the suburban growth of London in the 20th century, Bexley grew in population, becoming a municipal borough in 1935 and has formed a part of Greater London since 1965. Danson House and the nearby Danson Park in Welling are 2 of the principal famous attractions in the London Borough of Bexley. 1 of London's finest architectural families in the nineteenth century came from Bexley: the Shaws. John Shaw worked on Lamorbey Park and was a well-known architect in Kent and London, being among the first designers of semi-detached housing within the capital. He's buried at St. Mary's Church. His son, John Shaw Junior, lived in nearby Crayford for a short time and owned a villa which was knocked down in the early 20th century. Red House, the only home commissioned, created and lived in by William Morris, founder of the Arts and Crafts movement, is a building of extraordinary architectural and social significance. When it was completed in 1860, it was described by Edward Burne-Jones as 'the beautifullest place on earth'. The residence has been acquired by the National Trust and is open to the public. Though the residence is not completely furnished, the original features and furniture by Morris and Philip Webb, stained glass and paintings by Burne-Jones, the bold architecture and a garden developed to 'clothe the house' are still available to view. For all of your home improvement projects, make sure that you utilise reputable professionals in Bexley to make sure that you get the very best quality service.

    FAQs

    How to build a roof

    A roof serves as something which is so much more than just a top of a building. A roof delivers guard from the elements and precipitation, it also helps drain water from a structure, and helps to provide insulation to the structure allowing it to keep the interior of a building cool or warm, according to season.

    There are several steps to building a roof

    Mount the trusses.

    This step requires the building’s wall frames to be completely level, square and plumb. If you are building the roof onto a building that is still a frame you must use ladders or scaffolding. Hoist the trusses onto the roof.

    Install temporary braces.

    You will need to install temporary braces that the trusses can rest on until the sheathing and permanent bracing are installed, this has to be done before you install the trusses. At the centre of the back wall, nail the bottom half of one two-by-six board that's 16 feet long to the top of the outside wall, making sure you fasten it to a stud.

    Install the end trusses.

    Install the two end trusses at the front and back of the building, making sure you affix them to the temporary bracing. The batten you take will have to be a bit longer than the distance will separate the trusses.

    Install the standard trusses.

    According to the instructions provided by the manufacturer, you will first need to install the first standard truss. You will also need to nail it to the batten from the first truss.

    Sheath the roof.

    Once your trusses permanently braced, you can begin with the sheathing of the roof. Starting from the bottom corner and moving across the bottom, the sheathing is installed lengthwise.

    Install the roof cover.

    Like the sheathing and underlayment procedures, the roof cover is installed lengthwise from the bottom up. The shingles should be staggered, and they should also overlap at the same time. You will need to work up to the ridge and use a ridge cap shingles to finish the ridge.

    How to slate a roof

    One of the most popular choices for roofing materials are roof slates. There is a number of advantages that a roof slate has, hey can be aesthetically pleasing, they can also increase the potential selling value of the house and many more. Slate is a sturdy and resilient material that delivers waterproofing physical characteristics to a pitched roof. Unlike other roof materials which absorb water slates do not. Therefore, slate is the most resistant towards freezing and water damage.

    Find out the pitch of your roof

    Before beginning with the fitting procedure, you need to figure out the pitch of your roof. The roof pitch commands how much overlap is essential with each slate. This has been made a lot easier than the early days with the advancement of technology.

    Find out the required overlap

    Once you’ve found out the exact pitch of your roof accurately, take a look at the slate producer’s description. Each manufacturer will propose the obligatory overlap in order to form a firm and safe slate roof.

    Roll out the roof membrane

    Firstly, guarantee your joists or trusses are clean of any sheards or old nails that could harm the membrane. You will now have to roll the chosen roofing membrane along the roof trusses. It is always wise to start from one of the bottom corners and keep rolling it along to the other corner.

    Secure the roof membrane

    Once the membrane has been moved out, use thump nails to protect one edge. You will now have to pull the membrane taut and carefully fix it into position. Do this before adding any nails across the membrane at points of intersection with the trusses for extra stability.

    Batten placement

    This is done to find the proper assignment of the battens. For this, you will need two full-sized slates along with an under eaves slate. Carefully position the battens on the top of the roof on the top of the overlay. Make sure not to fix them down since it will be easier to move them around and make any adjustments.

    What types of roof tile are there?

    Roofing is one of the most significant portions of your household. Not only does it protect the inhabitants from the elements, but it also plays a vital role in the architectural appeal. When people reflect of roofing, they consider various types of tile for the job.

    Metal Tiles

    When we talk of metal roofs, most of the people think of roofs made of metal panels which are joined together by joints or raised seams. This is often not the case as there are several numbers of obtainable metal roofing products.

    Ceramic Tiles

    Another popular choice of roofing material is ceramic. Clay tiles are incombustible and fairly sturdy, necessitating scarcer repairs or substitutions than asphalt roofs.

    Concrete Tiles

    For those that like the look of ceramic tiles, as well as their fire resistance, this may not be the choice, but those who want something a little tougher and less susceptible to cracking when having work done on the roof, there are the best tiles.

    Bituminous Tiles

    For those that want a lightweight, supple tile that’s easier to fit, there’s the bituminous tile. These types of tiles are made from cellulose fibre or using fibreglass allowing them to be flexible.

    Polymer-Sand Tiles

    A new-fangled substitute for ceramic tiles is the polymer-sand tile. Created from a combination of sand bound together with polymers, these are very rigid, sturdy tiles are shaped in a mould.

    Copper Tile

    Copper roofs can be a great choice for many due to their long lifespan. Copper tiles have the ability to last over a century before needing replacement.

    Composite Tile

    Another newer roofing tile is the composite. This is a multi-layered tile that is made using metal, acrylic and stone granules.

    Stone Tiles

    This is one of the oldest forms of roofing tiles that you can get out there. It is also one of the longest-lasting tiles on the market as well, with some roofs lasting well over 100 years.

    How to tile a roof

    The task of installing a tile roof can be quite a difficult one. Such a project takes a great deal of preparation, well before the actual tile installation is done. It does not matter if you are putting new ones or replacing your old tiles, understanding the proper technique and steps become crucial.

    Remove old roofing (if applicable).

    This is, on its own, a major job that can take days and require special tools. It takes some time, but be prepared to do it right.

    Install battens (if applicable).

    Battens may be needed to hold the tiles in place if the roof is having a steep slope. Usually made of metal or wood, battens are generally 1 inch thick and run horizontally along the roof.

    You can find several varieties of tiles that has a hook or a lip allowing it to hang on the available battens. Apart from this, you can find several clips in the market which help to attach the tiles on to the batten.

    Determining the spacing for battens can be done easily using two tiles. To prevent interlocking, a three inch overlap is required at the minimum, and a smaller amount of overhang should be left over the eaves. Keep this in mind when you determine the locations of the battens.

    After you have determined the distance between the first two battens, measure the distance and set battens using that spacing up, making sure to double-check measurements as you go along.

    • Install the tiles.

    • You will need to begin with one side first, and then continue to move along the length of the roof.

    • Cut tiles to fit tight spots.

    • Tiles have to be cut precisely to overcome any obstacle like the chimney.

    • Install the ridge tiles.

    After completing the broad surfaces of the roof, special ridge tiles are required to cap the top.
