    Default Re-roofing victorian verandah

    Hi all,

    I've built myself a new jarrah deck and concave style victorian verandah as per picture. I'm about to slap the roof on and was just wondering if anybody had any pointers for beginners. Ive ordered the tin - the curved profile is to match the old one. I'm guessing its not rocket science but any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    no doubt you said that to stroke my ego. It is all original. When I bought the house the stone was varnished and pointed with grey cement and the bricks were painted. I stripped it back and repointed it myself..it took forever.

    What is it you are unsure of?

    Is it roof structure, setting out the sheets, screwing them down, flashings & edges, guttering & spouting, all the above or something else?

    BTW, I'll say it too, great job with the masonry.

    I guess Im after handy hints to make sure the sheets line up properly and whether there are any hints on how to get the flashings and joins in the sheets looking good, how to get the falls on the gutters right and where the best spot to put the down pipe might be...any advice apreciated.

    thanks

    What an awesome house. Totally drooling. Don't tell my Mrs, She'll make me move to S.A.
    By the way what sort of stone is it? Love it love it.

    I don't know how to fix your roof

    Ok, Im no roofy but Ill put me two cents in. Youll have to bend up the ends at the wall end to prevent wind blowing water back up the sheets.
    It would be good to have a string line at the lower end of the sheets to keep your line.
    When your putting the sheets up sight them from below up the sheet to see how they are sitting.
    That corbel appears to be a means of shedding water off the wall on to the roof. I would say it had a lead flashing in the past under the corbel? Did you see a lead flashing below or above the corbel prior to the repoint?

    There wasn't a wall plate sitting on top of the corbel prior to the strip out?

    What material sheeting are you using?

    Im guessing but Id say the down pipe goes on the external corner of the verandah fixed to a post. Water away from the walls.

    Not to much fall in the gutter as it will just look crooked. What material gutter are you using?
