The existing roof covering had reached the end of its service life, the roof had started to suffer from water ingress whilst areas of the flat roof deck had deflected creating ponding on the roof surface.

The use of the light weight Decra Flat to Pitched conversion system allowed the client to convert to a pitched roof without the requirement of additional structural supports. The Decra Classic Noxite tile offers a light weight steel covering (6.6 kg/m²) that is fully recyclable and helps reduce air pollution namely nitrogen oxides (NOx) assisting New Charter Homes in achieving their green initiatives.

Use of a Decra tile enabled the roof to be installed up to four times quicker than a traditional clay or concrete tile.

The investment in conversion from flat to pitched roof increased the asset value of the property and gave the client the peace of mind of a 40 year guarantee whilst the residents of the property benefit from increased aesthetics and a durable long lasting watertight roof finish.
