Pitched Roofing Ventilation

With any pitched roofing project proper roof ventilation systems are essential for controlling temperature and moisture in the attic or roof space. This includes ridge vents, soffit vents, and roof vents.

Insulation is also critical for regulating temperature and energy efficiency. Common insulation materials include fiberglass, cellulose, foam, and mineral wool.

The choice of materials and systems for pitched roofing depends on various factors, including the architectural style, climate, budget, and local building regulations.

Benjamin James Roofing are experienced and trained in all aspects of pitched roofing systems, ventilation, and insulation. This means we are able to offer the most appropriate and cost-effective solution for your needs.

Replacing a section of the roof.

Reliable, great quality, very professional team. Ben came out to assess the problem, explained what was required, sent quote, dropped off sample tile as promised, and then his team completed the work on time and without fuss. Kept us informed throughout the job, showing us the damage and explaining exactly what was required. We were very impressed with every aspect of the work, everything left tidy afterwards too. Thank you Ben, Dave and the team. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these guys.

Adam Gibbons

Replaced the entire roof on our house.

Having used Ben on smaller jobs in the past we were very confident he was the man to take on the much larger job of sympathetically replacing our roof in keeping with the age of our house (several centuries old). Despite many tricky sections where different elevations met, plus two flat roofs, dormer windows and a balcony to contend with, Ben and his team did a brilliant job. Ben’s communication was great right from very early planning/quoting stages right through to the end. He and all his guys were very reliable, polite and dependable. We are extremely happy with the end result.

Graham & Rowan Turrell

Replace 25 year old felt on flat roof house extension.

Upgraded to a modern rubber roof system with purpose designed edging and trims; ventilation was incorporated on Ben and Dave’s advice. The finished job looks terrific, and so much better than before. Work was done efficiently, care was taken with the house’s wall coating, and all rubbish was cleared off site. All the workers were a pleasure to have around. Would definitely recommend BJ Roofing.

Patt Jeffcoate

Removal and reinstallation of extension roof.

Extremely professional from first contact quote through to completion of the job. The team on site were thoughtful and polite and kept me updated on the progress of the work. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Zoe Green

Tiled a complicated extension and 2 front porches

Exceptional! I’ve used roofers before on building projects, but Benjamin James is by far the best. All the staff were customer-friendly and the quality of the workmanship and tidiness was exceptional. They gave me peace of mind so I could leave them to it without worry. One of the best trades I’ve come across. An absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Professional, competitively priced and really polite. Would absolutely recommend.
