Project Description

Roof styles

We offer a number of different roof styles. All have a “roof ridge” which is the highest horizontal length of the roof. The rain falls down from the ‘roof ridge’ to the ‘roof eaves’. Even the Moderna has a “roof ridge” at its highest side.

The roof can be orientated so that the ROOF RIDGE direction runs between the front wall and the back wall OR the right wall and left wall. In other words the ridge direction runs right angles to the front wall OR parallel to the front wall.

    Hi Keops,

    We are interested in your log cabins. Do you do Tesla solar tile roofing options? We are very green!

      Hi Andy,

      We are watching the Tesla solar tiles with interest too. Rumours are they will be introduced to the UK market sometime next year. At the moment there is very little information available on cost (around $42 in the USA per square foot according to some sources) and efficiency. They will be suitable for roof pitches over 14 degrees and half the weight of a ‘standard’ tile but no indication of what a ‘standard’ tile is. Also no information on how they will be fitted or the roof structure required. They do look great but we will have to wait and see…
