With the current rise in gas and electricity bills, more people are looking at the options of increasing their roof insulation to try and reduce their fuel costs. Around half of all heat lost in a typical home is through the walls and roof. Understandably then it is worth investigating whether your roof is insulated to the current Part ‘ L’ building regulations of ‘Conservation of Fuel and Power’. Insulating your roof is a simple and effective way to reduce your heating bills.
The government therefore are offering certain grants, to try and encourage more people to reduce their heat loss and create more energy efficient homes. If insulation is improved to comply with current regulations in conjunction with roofing works, the VAT rate is applicable at 5% instead of 20% for all works carried out including waterproofing.
GUTTERING, FASCIAS AND SOFFITS
The main purpose of a rain gutter is to protect a building’s foundation by channelling water away from its base. They also help to reduce erosion, prevent leaks in basements and crawlspaces, protect painted surfaces by reducing exposure to water, and provide a means to collect rainwater for later use.
Rain gutters can be constructed from a variety of materials, including cast iron, lead, zinc, galvanized steel, painted steel, copper, painted aluminium and PVC.
Water collected by a rain gutter is fed, usually via a downspout, from the roof edge to the base of the building where it is either discharged or collected.
- Rainwater systems suitable for domestic, commercial and conservatory applications.
- High-capacity systems requiring fewer downpipes.
- Round and square downpipes available.

FALL ARREST SYSTEMS
CP Roofing is a registered installer of the reputable Man Anchor System. Man Anchor are leaders in the design of custom built fall protection systems We supply and install anchor points, static lines, shock absorbing lanyards, overhead rails, permanent rails, walkways and handrails.
The Man Anchor- anchor point system utilises shock absorbing 316 stainless steel anchors which provide secure attachment points to a large number of surfaces when working at height. The system has been developed and extensively tested with ultimate safety in mind and offers complete peace of mind for those using it. The design allows for a substantial range of movement for personnel, allowing them to work unhindered on the most precarious of surfaces. It significantly reduces force into the structure, allowing for attachment to light gauge structures. The one piece drop forged anchor point contains no welds for complete solidity
