Zinc Roof Extension with Velux Windows
In VMZinc Anthra
The builders of this project contacted us to provide zinc roofing for the kitchen/dinner extension at the rear of this property. The architect had already specified Anthra Grey Coloured Zinc to a warm roof, which was also to incorporate 4 Velux Windows.
Also within the the design was a zinc parapet box gutter, zinc parapet capping and an angle at the far end of the roof which needed to be installed correctly to ensure the water fell directly towards the gutter.
Three of the four windows incorporated into the zinc roof design were close together and thus the roof needed to be designed to be aesthetically pleasing whilst also ensuring that the bays, despite the lack of space, were technically well formed to allow water to flow well.
As a result we incorporated into the design odd angles, lengths and widths to create the overall smooth and pleasing facade, which still worked well technically.
The clients were pleased that from above and below the sharp, evenly spaced lines of the roof looked pleasing to the eye and that we had managed to ensure their velux windows were exactly where they wished them to be.
