Format: Paperback
Overall a good introduction to the subject, but if you are looking for a DIY guide to loft conversion, then look elsewhere. This book is packed with instructive diagrams throughout and gives a thorough overview of roof construction past and present. The only thing I feel could improve this book is a more thorough treatment of the loft conversion section.

brought this book in hope to learn more about the technical details and reasons for installtion of steel in a loft and placement of new adequate joists (independant floor)... i.e directions of forces and types of steel etc... this hardly mentions this ... for a loft conversion book its pretty general

Format: Paperback
I think this book is more suitable for the professional and student rather than homeowner. The reason I say this is that one could become bogged down in the intricacies of roof work and the illustrations provided are diagrams only no photos. But as a roof construction manual this is pretty good particularly from a truss roof point of view.

You will find in detail : Traditional cut roof construction, bolted truss roof construction, construction of trussed rafter roofs, truss plate systems, roof construction detailing, loft conversions, obligations and solutions. Its a fairly comprehensive view of roofing systems but good value for money.
