Plain Tile to Interlocking Tile Re-Roof, Denton

Over the years, our team at Pinnacle Roof and Build are called upon to complete a full re-roof on many properties with older type plain tiles. This is quite a common job for our team to work on, and it allows us to showcase to clients our tremendous work with replacing these older plain tiles with an interlocking tile.

Interlocking tiles fit securely with a single lap, whereas plain tiles require laying double-lapped to ensure weather tightness.

Step 1

As with most jobs, the team examined the state of the current roofing to determine the extent of work that lay ahead.

After a full assessment was done, work began on stripping the roof down to the rafters. From here, our team proceeded to felt and batten the rafters using a combination of new breathable felt and 2×1 batten.

Step 2

The next step was to tile the roof by using Marlow Ludlow Major roof tiles. Marley Ludlow tiles are the most popular tiles throughout the UK and are very well regarded for their roof detailing, providing a great look. For this particular roof, the selection of smooth grey was chosen.

As standard with all re-roofing work we undertake, the project was thoroughly insulated throughout and was finished with the installation of a dry-fix ridge system, providing waterproof unions underneath the screws to divert water away from the join.

The finished result of this re-roof is a speciality for the team at Pinnacle Roof and Build, ensuring satisfaction in the replacement of older plain tiles with interlocking tiles.

Working in a high pressure law firm means we often don’t have time to turn our attention to the things that need doing to the building we work in.

Since we occupied our Cheadle offices back in 2017, we have have always had and issue with the flat roof at the back. Any time we have tried to resolve it, we have either been met with unreliable workmen, or extortionate quotes.

Once Brad joined BNI – and after hearing about all the fantastic work he had done for fellow members – we decided to call him in to quote. After attending the offices and providing a very reasonable and detailed quotation, we instructed Pinnacle Roof and Build to replace the flat roof at the office.

Brad and his team always turned up on the days and times stipulated – and if there was ever a change in the schedule, Brad would always let me know in advance.

It wasn’t the easiest of jobs, and Brad and his team were met with a lot of challenges – but despite this, the invoice at the end did not exceed the initial quote, and the works were still completed in time.

All in all, Pinnacle Roof and Build provided a first class service. They went above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to family, friends, and business associates.

Overall impressed with the work and the workmanship.

J Morris – Woodley.

We first reached out to pinnacle when our roof was leaking last winter which they temporarily repaired.
We then had them back in the spring to re-roof our entire house. Great work lads.

P Bolton – Woodley.

Very high standard of work, gave great advice and provided a second to none service!
Will be using again!

We decided to use pinnacle roof and build because I thought Brad was very easy to deal with and very knowledgeable about the work we needed doing.
Great company, great set of lads
