Bloomfield Roofers construct attics for extra space

Having chosen the most desirable type of attic, it is necessary to determine whether it is possible to place it on the old walls of the house or whether they should be reinforced. Therefore, it is necessary Bloomfield Roofers make accurate calculations and preparation for the new roofing project.

The basics of the roof beam structure

Most roofs, and the attic in this case is no exception, has one of two types of beam system, or a combined version of them. Each of these varieties has its own characteristics, which depend on the location of the load-bearing walls of the building.

1. Hanging system

The suspended beam system is determined by the fact that it is supported only on two external main walls located along the building, in which there are no internal main partitions. Such a system is used provided that the distance between the capital supports is not more than 13 ÷ 14 meters. In any case, this structure gives a fairly large load to the walls and foundation of the building.

To relieve loads on this system, support various components – crossbars, headstock, knees, puffs, shelves and other details. For example, the grandmothers, as it were, suspend the whole system on the ridge beam by tightening and the struts pull the overlapping beams at the feet of the beam.

For the attic floor in this system, it is necessary to use thick rods, logs or planks, which are installed on the edge. Their thickness can be determined from the table given in this publication, based on the distance between the support points. In order for the coating to be reliable and durable when using the suspension system, it is necessary to make accurate calculations and if it is difficult to do it yourself, then it is better to ask Bloomfield Roofers for a free estimate.

2. Slab contraction joints

The raised system differs in that it has supports not only on the external main walls, but also on the internal partitions, which have a base below them. Therefore, when starting to build a roof in which an attic is designed, you need to think in advance the location of the internal capital partitions.

For a house with an attic, the multi-level system is the best choice, as the beams that overlap the house will be firmly and reliably fixed to the walls and partitions. When erecting a broken attic roof structure, you can use a combined version of the roof system, i.e use elements of both a suspended system and a mattress.
