Pitched roofs are known to offer aesthetic appeal, especially since most flat roofs remain unseen from ground level. In pitched roof extensions, the choice of materials typically aligns with the existing building’s roof material to comply with building regulations. The construction of a pitched roof extension typically includes timber roof rafters, insulation, a breathable membrane, timber battens, slates or tiles, rainwater goods, and flashings. The cost of a pitched roof extension can vary based on size and materials. At IPX Roofing Services, we provide top-quality materials tailored to your budget and requirements. Our roofing teams are highly skilled in slating, tiling, and lead plumbing, ensuring the delivery of a beautiful pitched roof extension.
Considerable advantages come with choosing a pitched roof for your extension. One primary advantage is the prevention of rainwater pooling, a common issue with poorly designed flat roofs. Pitched roofs, by nature, do not allow water to accumulate, leading to potentially longer guarantees. Additionally, from ground level, well-installed pitched roofs, using quality materials, can be visually stunning. Whether adorned with natural slates and leadwork for a rustic charm or clay plain tiles and cement for a natural masterpiece, pitched roofs enhance the overall aesthetics. IPX Roofing, with our experienced professionals, specialises in installing high-quality pitched roofs with a variety of materials. We’ve successfully renewed and installed numerous pitched roof extensions in and around the Sunderland area, leaving satisfied customers. Contact us today for a free quotation.

Numerous factors, including cost, materials, and installation, should be considered in the replacement process. The expenses associated with replacing a roof can fluctuate based on the size and type of the roof, and the chosen material also significantly influences these costs. Concrete tiles, slate tiles, and clay tiles are common roofing materials, but it’s essential to research and select the most suitable material for your needs. Additionally, project timelines and hiring a reliable roofing contractor are vital considerations. Proper planning can ensure a smooth execution of your roof replacement project.
Undertaking a new roof installation is a substantial endeavour, emphasising the importance of hiring an experienced roofing contractor specialising in the desired roof type.

In the framework of pitched roofs, the foundational structure involves rafters, typically wooden timbers providing support for the roof. In its natural state, only a layer of tiles separates the interior of your property from external elements. This is where the importance of roof insulation becomes evident. Approximately a quarter of a house’s heat is lost through an uninsulated roof. This represents a substantial amount of heat that could otherwise be retained within your home, contributing to better insulation. Introducing insulating materials around the rafters adds an additional layer of protection to your roof, commonly achieved with materials like glass wool.
Glass wool, composed of glass fibres from borosilicate glass, has a texture resembling wool but incorporates various elements such as silica sand and recycled glass. It possesses notable properties, including fire resistance and effective heat loss reduction. Moreover, it is sustainable, being crafted from recyclable materials, and serves as an excellent thermal and sound insulator, maintaining an ideal temperature within your home while keeping external sounds at bay.
Implementing roof insulation proves to be an effective means of keeping your home warm, leading to significant reductions in energy consumption and cost savings on your bills. Ideally, incorporating roof insulation during the construction of your roof is the best strategy. However, even if your roof is already in place, our professional team at IPX Roofing Services can access your loft space and add insulation at any time.
If you’re seeking to maintain a comfortable home temperature throughout the seasons and are considering insulation, or if you require a new roof with integrated insulation, feel free to reach out to us at IPX Roofing Services today for a complimentary, no-obligation quote.

There are various methods to repair a damaged chimney, with the most common involving the use of mortar to fill in cracks and gaps. This approach is typically effective for small cracks and leaks. However, for more severe damage, it may be necessary to replace sections of the chimney or even the entire structure.

Frequently Asked Questions
If my roof is damaged, can I carry out the repair work myself?
Repairing a damaged roof on your own is generally discouraged due to the specialised nature of roofing work. Professional roofing contractors undergo training to efficiently and safely handle repairs and replacements. Attempting repairs without the necessary expertise can lead to injuries and may worsen the existing damage to your roof.
If, for some reason, you feel the need to assess your roof personally, remember safety precautions are crucial. Ensure the use of a securely braced ladder with rubber safety feet to provide stability. Having someone assist you during the assessment for support and emergency situations. Additionally, wearing rubber-soled shoes is advisable to enhance grip while climbing the ladder and walking on the roof.
Nevertheless, even if you personally evaluate the damage, it is strongly recommended to hire a professional roofing contractor for the actual repair work. Roofing professionals possess the required skills, knowledge, and equipment to address roof issues effectively while prioritising safety. Roof repairs demand specific expertise to ensure not only cosmetic fixes but also to address underlying problems, preventing further damage. Attempting roof repairs without proper training and tools can lead to more significant issues and compromise the integrity of your roofing system. Therefore, it’s best to leave roof repairs to the professionals who can ensure the job is done correctly and safely.
Will I Have To Move Out If My Roof Is Being Repaired?
In the majority of cases, you typically do not need to vacate your home during roof repairs. These repairs generally target specific issues like leaks, damaged shingles, or localised problems. Roofing contractors are adept at working on homes that are still occupied and take measures to ensure the safety and comfort of the residents throughout the repair process. However, there are factors to consider. Roof repairs can be noisy, potentially causing some disruption during construction. If you are sensitive to noise or require a quieter environment at specific times of the day, it’s advisable to discuss this with your roofing contractor.
Contractors will implement safety precautions to prevent accidents, which may involve limiting access to certain areas of your home or property. Depending on the repair extent, there might be temporary inconveniences, such as relocating furniture or covering belongings to shield them from dust or debris. If a complete roof replacement is necessary, the timeline for completion may be longer, and there could be more substantial disruption. Nevertheless, contractors strive to minimise its impact on your daily life. Always consult with your roofing contractor to gain a clear understanding of the repair scope, expected timeline, and any potential inconveniences.
Do I need planning permission to re-roof my property?
In ordinary circumstances, planning permission is typically not required for re-roofing or the installation of lights and skylights due to permitted development rules. These rules allow for alterations, but they come with specific limitations and conditions. One such limitation is that any alteration should not project more than 150 millimetres from the existing roof plane. Additionally, alterations should not exceed the height of the highest part of the roof. Side facing windows resulting from these alterations must be obscure-glazed, and any opening should be positioned at least 1.7 metres above the floor.
Furthermore, the permitted development regime for solar panels introduces different limits on projections, especially in relation to protected areas. However, it’s important to be aware of exceptions. If your house is situated within a conservation area or a world heritage site, stricter guidelines may be in place, necessitating careful adherence to additional regulations.
When Does a Roof Need To Be Replaced or Repaired?
When you’ve conducted numerous repairs on your roof, replacement often becomes necessary. The extent of the affected area is another factor in determining whether repair or replacement is the optimal solution. If the damage is extensive, opting for replacement is often the more effective choice. To assess the condition of your roof, consider requesting a professional roof inspection.
For localised damage, a skilled roofer can undertake repairs. However, if the damage surpasses 30 percent of the roof, the recommendation might lean toward replacement. Moreover, replacing the roof after 15 years is advisable, potentially saving you from frequent repair expenses. Seeking guidance from your roofer based on their assessment can provide a reliable and professional perspective on the best course of action.
What Should I Look for in a Roofing Contractor?
When engaging a roofing contractor in Sunderland, it’s crucial to weigh several key considerations. Prioritise contractors with experience, valid licences, and comprehensive insurance coverage. A reputable contractor should provide warranties for both their workmanship and the materials employed. Assess their reputation and reliability by examining online reviews and requesting references. Obtain detailed written estimates and compare multiple quotes to facilitate an informed decision-making process.
How Will I Know When My Roof Needs Attention?
Identifying a damaged roof typically involves recognizing certain indicators. If you notice tiles or slate around the base of the house or in the guttering, investigation is warranted. Missing slates or tiles on the roof itself are another observable sign requiring inspection. Water damage is also a significant red flag; indications like light brown marks, bulging, or drips on the upstairs ceiling necessitate further scrutiny. Obvious leaks and visible daylight in the loft are also noteworthy indicators.
The roofline components (fascia, soffit, guttering, etc.) may exhibit visible damage signs. Rotting wood, cracked plastic, and water marks are clear indicators that prompt the need for roof and roofline assessment. However, it’s important to note that issues may not always be apparent from the ground, requiring closer inspection. Not all roof damage is visible, posing a challenge in identifying existing or potential problems. To ensure your roof’s optimal condition, especially if suspicions arise, it’s advisable to have it professionally surveyed by a roofer.
How Long Will It Take to Complete My Roofing Project?
The timeframe for completing a roofing project depends on several factors that should be taken into account for an accurate estimation. The size and complexity of your project, including the design and architectural features of your roof, are influential. Larger roofs or those with intricate designs may necessitate more time for completion. The choice of roofing material is another factor, as different materials have distinct installation processes and preparation requirements, affecting the overall project duration. Weather conditions also play a significant role, with adverse weather such as rain or extreme temperatures potentially slowing down or temporarily halting the work.
The inclusion of structural repairs, if required, can further extend the project timeline. Addressing underlying issues before installation is crucial for the long-term durability of your roof. The permitting and inspection process is an additional consideration.
Under optimal conditions and for an average-sized home, a new roof typically requires approximately 1-3 days. However, this is a general estimate, and specific circumstances may lead to variations. Factors like the size and complexity of the roof, the chosen roofing materials, weather conditions, and any necessary structural repairs, as mentioned before, can impact the timeline. For a more accurate estimate based on the unique characteristics of your project, it’s advisable to consult with your roofing professional.
Should I Replace My Roof Before I List My Home?
A significant 40 percent of a home’s curb appeal is attributed to the condition and visual appeal of the roof. When selling your home, a deteriorating or in-need-of-repair roof can pose challenges in attracting potential buyers.
Many contemporary buyers are budget-conscious and prefer not to incur substantial repair expenses right after purchasing a house. Opting to replace your roof before selling can proactively address potential issues, positioning your home favourably in the market. This strategic move allows you to recoup most, if not all, of the costs associated with the roof replacement when you sell. Investing in a new roof not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your home but also aligns with the preferences of budget-conscious buyers, potentially facilitating a smoother and more lucrative home sale.
