Spruce roof

A common roof construction

The rafter roof is perhaps the most widely used roof structure in recent times. A rafter roof is also called a truss roof or truss roof. In a truss roof, wooden beams run – equally spaced – from the ridge to the gutter. These beams provide support for the roofing and actually bear the entire weight of the roofing. A rafter roof is a sturdy roof structure and is therefore very widely used.


Difference between spruce roof and purlin roof

There are two common roof structures: a rafter roof or a purlin roof. The rafter roof, as mentioned, is a roof structure where wooden beams run from the ridge to the gutter.

A purlin roof is a structure where the beams run in a horizontal direction from building wall to building wall. The beams that make up the structure bear down on the load-bearing walls. Load-bearing walls then bear the weight of the roof, so to speak.

Cost of a roof construction

When the roof structure needs replacement, the entire roof comes off and eventually a new roof needs to be put on (or you can still go ahead with your current tiles). With a job like this, it is difficult to determine the cost of just the roof structure. This depends on many different factors. Think of the area of your roof, the type of construction, but also whether the old insulation is still usable or whether it needs to be replaced. You may also need to hire an architect to draw up a blueprint.

That’s why we like to come by for a free roof inspection to take stock of the status of your roof, what can be reused and what really needs replacing. We’ll go up on your roof, show you the photos on which we base our recommendation, and provide you with a competitive and customized quote.


Roof insulation at a Spruce roof

One of the advantages of a rafter roof, compared to a purlin roof, is that with a rafter roof you can insulate with roof sheeting. A rafter roof is great for that. With a purlin roof, you first have to put rails over the purlins to be able to work with roof foil.

In addition, at VIP Dakservice we work with roofing sheets that are specifically designed for a rafter roof. These are sheets that are placed horizontally on top of the rafter roof. The installation of this roof insulation is not labor intensive, so we are able to insulate your roof very quickly. In addition, the roof boards have the advantage of being waterproof.

If you would like to know more about the insulation of your roof, our roofers will be happy to tell you more!
