Seminar Title: Cedral Roofs – How to get the perfect roof.
Seminar Description: Your roof is one of the most important elements when building your home – after all, it is what keeps you and your family safe from the elements. And, seated at the edge of Europe in the Atlantic, we really know all about volatile weather! This aim of this seminar is to take you through inspiration and information. For starters, we will look at the various roofing materials that are available in the market place and will outline the various features and benefits of each. As part of this we will also showcase some beautiful homes from across the country. The second part will focus on a little technical information that will be incredibly advantageous to a self-builder. We will outline the relevant slating and tiling regulations and what it means for you and your home, as well as talk you through some of the key factors to ensure you get a roof that not only looks great, but will be long lasting, durable and strong – give you and your family peace of mind. You will come away from this seminar confident about what to ask your roofer / builder and will know what the steps are to roofing your dream home. You will have a better understanding also of budget considerations and hopefully you will gain some inspiration too!
