• Temporary Roofs

  • Temporary roofs offer more than just weather proofing. Installing temporary roofs can reduce the risk of working at height. Instead of laying individual sheets we use one, long sheet that is pulled through the scaffold on tracks. This makes erection easier in inclement weather. Beams are in place to span the roof and then plastic sheeting is secured around it to encapsulate it and make it weather proof.

    This kind of structure is often required in building refurbishments or when a roof is replaced but an encapsulation can speed up a project's build time, by protecting both workers and the build from the elements. Sometimes a temporary roofing structure is used to control an environment such as reducing frost.

    Ducker & Young offers both system temporary roofs and traditional temporary roofs.
