Tile roof

We were thinking of having a depot built for storage but now maybe thinking of having our roof terrace covered with a proper tiled roof instead, we don't use it as a terrace and thought that this would give us extra protection from water build up and also somewhere useful for storage at the same time. Has anyone had this done? Can we still use our solar panels, do they situate them on top of the roof? We have asked about re prices so have some idea but if anyone has had this done recently an idea of price would be helpful, we're in the Bodrum area?

Thanks in advance of any help

Re: Tile roof

Don't know about this very much, but i do know i wouldn't have my roof done again in tiles. At some-point they crack and start leaking. I would have that heavy duty rubbered carpet put down if i we`re you. Sorry but i don't really know what you call it, but I'm sure someone here does. There are various things you can done to the roof, getting it tiled looks lovely...but there are problems after a while. My next door neighbour has had a new one put down about 3 times in the last 6 years.

Re: Tile roof

hi Sara,

We had our terrace covered a few years ago.
At first we had tiles as it was cheaper than shingle, but later we changed to shingle. The reason we changed to shingle was due to the birds nesting under the tiles - they made alot of mess and even more noise. Part of our terrace roof covers our bedroom window and the noise of the birds reached a ridiculous level so we had the tiles taken off and replaced with the expensive shingle, which is like a thick gritty sheet. However, whenever it rains heavily this causes little reddy-black crystals/grit to loosen and litter the terrace and pathways. It drives me crazy!
I just thought I'd mention this.

Also, if your terrace roof will cover your lounge or bedroom windows be aware that during the summer it will keep the room cooler (by blocking sunlight) but also keep it colder during the winter too. The terrace will still be open to rain if you don't have the sides closed and if the wind blows the rain into your terrace.

Personally I will build a storage for 100% security and weatherproofing,

Charlotte

Re: Tile roof

Perhaps check with local council re planning permision first if its allowed.

Re: Tile roof

If you use tiles then there is some black corrugated sheet you can have fitted underneath first to prevent leaks personally I would have a membrane fitted first then the corrugated sheets then tiles on top of that. The builders here don't use flashing like they do in the UK just using silicone to seal the join between roof and house wall so this is an area to make sure is weather tight.

A friend of mine recently built a whole new terrace out of steel, which he roofed in Tongue & Grooved Pine then Shingle over the top.

I recently built my own depot out of breeze block and did the roof in OSB board/Membrane and Shingle.

Breeze block construction, really easy to do.

You can just make out the membrane under the shingle here.

Re: Tile roof

Thanks all, but I think the title was a bit misleading, I'm looking for a 'proper' roof, with wooden beams etc then roof tiles over the top, to make like an attic room. We've had a flat roof for 3 years and already had to re-do it once in that time as it was leaking.

It was just a thought that as we were planning to build a depot outside for storage we may as well have the roof put on the house and use the space there as storage instead.

Lynne, thanks, but we don't need planning permission as we have no belediye at the minute, unless this changes with the new belediye boundaries, so we just need to inform the muhtar as we did when we built the house.

We spoke to someone locally about prices, just wanted to know if anyone else out there has had one done recently so we could compare prices, always a good idea to get a few quotes.

Thanks
Sara

Re: Tile roof

Oh, for that i think you will need permission...do others where you live have a pitched roof? if they have then maybe its OK to carry on and do it, but i would check first.

Re: Tile roof

Some houses here have a pitched roof, most have flat with tiles, like a terrace, but then most of the houses near us are only the one storey.

Because it's classed as a 'koy ev' the Muhtar is the person responsible for all decisions, it was him that originally gave us the permission to build on our land.
