Converting a flatroof?

Postby 3magnet » Mon Apr 23, 2007 12:40 pm

I want to convert my entrance porch flatroof to a pitched roof. Could this be a DIY job, or would planning application be required? If it is possible to do this myself, where can I get plans to do so, or are there pitchroof sets available for this?

Would you be able to recommend a reputable builder in the Deleted area of Basildon?

Talk to the building control officer abouty this as it may need planning permission. It is possible to do this yourself but if you have no experience it may pay you to enlist the help of an architect to do a drawing for you and at least you will then know what materials to use.
