Wessex GRP Dormer window roof unit provides the builder with a quick to install cost saving modern alternative to traditional building construction methods. The Combination of traditional on site roof tiling with the Wessex factory manufactured lightweight GRP dormer unit provides the best of both worlds. The dormer unit is factory finished and complete with internal stud framing, polyurethane foam insulation and pre-installed roof truss rafters. The side cheeks are manufactured with integral flashing / gutter details.
Wessex prefabricated apex hipped / pitched dormer roof units are manufactured from long lasting low maintenance GRP laminate materials. Complete with treated timber truss rafters, fully bonded treated timber stud framing to walls and ceiling. The dormer wall sections have 70mm polyurethane foam insulation providing a thermal U-Value for the dormer walls, of 0.30 W/M2 K-1 calculated in accordance to BS EN ISO 6946: 1997. For apex hipped truss roof dormer units we recommend no less than 250mm site installed rock wool or similar approved insulation material laid over the ceiling framing / plasterboard. For the inner lining Vapour check plasterboard is required. Maintenance of your Wessex dormer roof unit is not required apart from occasional cleaning to remove any dirt or grubby marks with a damp cloth and non abrasive household detergent. Wessex Building Products have been manufacturing dormer window roof units for over 30 years and found that dormers exposed to the elements and natural light for period in excess 10 years will not suffer any significant change to the physical properties. Life expectancy beyond 30 years can be expected
