∗ cut roofs

∗ bolted truss roofs

∗ trussed rafter roofs

∗ roof windows and dormers for lofts

∗ trimmed openings

A major section deals with loft–to–attic–room conversions, giving guidance on planning procedures, as well as dealing with structural matters and specifying conversion work.

The book will prove invaluable to architects, housebuilders, roof carpenters, building control officers, trussed rafter manufacturers and students of building technology.

4.0 out of 5 stars An informative resource. 23 Aug 2001
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive guide 23 Jan 2009
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars not that detailed 29 July 2011
By sunny R
Format:Paperback
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
