Whether re-roofing or building a brand new home, your roof is second only to cladding as the biggest factor affecting the design of your home.
And it isn’t just colour that makes all the difference, simply changing a roof profile can transform a home from ordinary to architectural.
When choosing a roof it comes down to three key factors and deciding which one is the priority for your home:
We have a wide range of products and can put a roof on any home
There is so much more to choosing a roof than choosing its colour — the single factor that has the most impact on the 'design' of your roof is the roof profile. Just take a look at the impact of the four different profiles on the house pictured on our homepage — they're all the same colour, but what a difference it makes to the home's finish! Our Heritage Tray roof is inspired by European design and produces a modern look that is not only visually attractive but affordable too. Bring design back into your roofing choice and see what a difference it will make.
Environmental factors are the first consideration in choosing a new roof. Saltwater, high wind, climate and uninvited roof guests all affect the best roofing choice for you. In addition you've got to ensure you have the correct insulation, spouting, downpipes and that the framing structure has not been compromised — only an experienced Roofingsmiths roofer is qualified to recommend the best options. In keeping with Calder Stewart's solid and reliable 50 year reputation, we have chosen our local Roofingsmiths teams extremely carefully. Our roofers can be trusted to recommend the best roofing solution for your unique needs.
Designer roofs aren't just for designer homes. Your roof and cladding are the biggest aesthetic features of your home— and as a result one of the easiest ways to add value to it. Many of our roofing profiles are a comparative price to corrugate — yet deliver a far superior design finish. This is particularly attractive to property investors or renovators doing their home up for sale. Our philosophy is to produce a diverse range of products that will not only protect your investment, but also provide an attractive high quality finish, whilst catering to a wide range of budgets.
