The design of many Pitched Roofing related systems require calculations to be performed. This may be for Wind Uplift or Aircraft Wake Vortex fixing calculations, Water run off drainage calculations, Material quantity calculations, or double lap slate pitch and head lap calculations.



When all you have is a roof tile in your hand, and you need to know what fixing specification to write into a specification or quotation, The Tiled Roofing Consultancy can take that tile with site and building data supplied by you, and undertake the BS 5534 calculations needed to produce a nail or clip fixing specification.

This service is not intended for roof coverings where the manufacturer offers a free fixing specification service for their products. This is specifically for those roof coverings where the manufacturer does not have the facilities to provide a fixing specification service.

rooftilefixWe can also undertake wind uplift fixing calculations for double lap slates, Plain tiles, and interlocking clay and concrete tiles, for any of the previous editions of BS 5534 back to 1978. All you need to do is print off the Site and building input data sheet, fill out all the facts and contact details for each building (more than one sheet will be required if the building is complicated) and send them to us along with a good sample of the tiles to obtain a fixing specification.

• Rooflow

If during heavy rainfall, water overflows the guttering rather than going down the rain water pipes, the roof water flow can be analysed and calculations made to comply with BSEN 12056-3 to determine the cause of the problem, and provide recommendations to correct the situation. All we need is a good roof plan, the specification for the guttering used, and good photographs of each elevation, to help determine the arrangement of rain water pipes. It may be that we also need to visit site and investigate further if the calculations do not indicate a water flow problem.

• Roofquants

There are occasions when it is easier to get somebody else to calculate the quantity of roofing materials that will be required for your slate or tile roofing project. This we can do for you from an accurate set of building plans and a copy of the specification.
