Whether you are looking to have a full roof replacement or just replacing parts of your roof, roofing accessories are highly important considerations.
If you are getting a section of roof replaced you may consider also having insulation added to your roof.
The main type of insulation used on commercial projects is Anti-condensation blanket (or Anticon). It can also be known as Builder’s blanket and is a combination of glasswool and aluminium foil. Anticon has been designed for temperature and noise control in buildings with metal roofs.
Please be aware that insulation blanket cannot be retro-fitted to an existing roof!
Downpipes are highly important but often overlooked. They are essential in draining rainwater away from the roof, down to the building’s drainage system.

These steel ‘mesh’ guards protect commercial gutters and sumps from becoming blocked by debris or hail. They are installed over gutters and sumps (or downpipe outlets), providing a barrier which allows water to flow through whilst preventing debris and hail to do so. They are particularly useful on commercial sites (such as shopping centres) where birds may go through rubbish and leave litter on the roof where it can collect and cause sump blockages
