What is a traditional cut roof?

A traditional cut roof is exactly what it says on the tin, it is a roof where all members are cut on site to each individual roof.  The construction of a cut roof is to ensure the load imposed on it is evenly transmitted to the bearing points below.

The rafters are the main load bearing elements of the roof spanning from the wall plate to the ridge beam. The rafters are sometimes supported by purlins if the rafter length requires it, which act as a beam to support the rafter length. The purlins are supported by struts, which in turn are supported on an internal load bearing wall and the collar ties are used to connect the rafters which prevent them from spreading outwards. The collar ties and hangers are used to improve the overall strength and stability of the roof.

Traditional cut roofing is commonly used when a roof space is intended to be lived in and where the access of a crane is restricted.

 

Benefits of a cut roof?

  • No need for mechanical means such as a tele-handler or crane to load out material (roof size dependent)
  • Can create more room height on tighter buildings
  • Can be tailored made to any roof shape and size no matter how complex
  • Can later be adjusted to add Velux’s and or dormers
  • No need to worry about height restriction on access as all materials can be delivered on a flat bed
