Pavilion roof cover – Step by Step

A gazebo provides comfort. The DIY can succeed, but covering the polygonal roof, provides home improvement and remains a challenge.

1. Material selection – the right type of roof for the pavilion

Before we get to the ceiling of gazebos, the handyman selects the correct materials. The roof of the pavilion is usually polygonal and runs like a pyramid in the middle together. In construction market in different sizes finished PVC roof variants can be screwed onto the undercarriage.

The most common roof variant for DIY is the roof of bitumen roofing felt for customizability and resilience. For this type of roof tiles in optics your need a Vordeckplane, roofing shingles, hammer and nails. Equally important are drills, screws, Drip and Traufstücke of corrosion-resistant stainless steel. With a roof pitch from 60 percent also the bitumen glue is needed.

2. Roof area calculation by Pythagoras

To determine the material requirements of Handyman grab the yard stick and measure the roof. In this way it determines the extent of Traufstücke and facia boards.

For total area calculation draw the root of roof height plus base squared. From result of subtracting the square of the base divided by two. If he draws the root, he gets the height of a single roof side, which he shares with the two and multiplying the result by the base and replaced by the surface of a single side of the roof. For the total roof area – multiplying this single page with the number of pavilion corners.

3. Material requirements planning

The result of the area calculation is the total roof area. The required Vordeckplane for building work must be round about ten centimeters larger than the total roof area. Asphalt shingles need it again in the total roof area two times since the roofing felt is laid overlapping. Those who want to gain an overview of the total price of the materials, the calculated square takes conclusively times three.
