This month meet Barry Organ, an experienced profile roofing installer, has provided Briarwood Products with fixing advice, testing of sheeting, as well as fitting for over 30 years.
What type of roofing roofing sheets do you fit?
I’m an experienced roofer for industrial, agricultural and commercial buildings. I fit all types of roofing materials, metal sheets as well as fibre cement.
What is the difference between other roofing sheets and EuroSIX?
In my years of roofing, there have been many advancements, there has never been a fibre cement roofing that is easier to fit than EuroSIX. The quick top fixed method used to install EuroSIX is quicker and safer than in the past. And of course, it’s a much better quality roofing than metal alternatives, due to its vapour permeability.
What is the most important factors to consider when fitting roofing sheets?
Project management and good planning is key to installing a roof efficiently. Usually a team of 2-3 fitters is ideal for a job. Health and safety is essential when working from height and safety management of each installation must be planned well in advance.
Another tip is to pay special attention when cutting the mitres!
