In this article we will show you how to choose the right roof for your home. As they say in the company H + H (H + H), which has been producing autoclaved aerated concrete at a plant in the Leningrad region for almost 10 years, the bearing capacity of autoclaved aerated concrete blocks makes it possible to implement various roofing projects using any roofing material. By the way, the roof may well be operated: it will be possible to place a “garden-garden” on it or equip a place for rest – aerated concrete will withstand everything.

On the company’s website all types of products are presented, there are detailed technical characteristics, as well as detailed instructions for use.

Of course, the accuracy of the calculations is important, so it is worth involving specialists in this process. But if you are building a house on your own, you should pay attention to a number of important points when installing a roof on a house from aerated concrete blocks. To begin with, as emphasized in H + H, you need to familiarize yourself with the recommended solutions of the manufacturers of building materials themselves. As a rule, such information is collected in special reference books. The company Н + Н has a similar collection called the Album of technical solutions. It is freely available on the manufacturer’s website ( there is a section in the Album about roofing. The information is presented in more than detail.

What should be considered when installing roofs? First, the drainage system. These can be downpipes or gutters. Secondly, it is worth taking care of the roof insulation. As practice shows, for pitched roofs, insulation based on mineral wool with a thickness of 200 mm is best suited; for flat roofs, you need to select the thickness of the insulation, taking into account the thickness of the coating slab.

In any case, as advised in H + H, the roofing should be completed before the arrival of bad weather in autumn. Such foresight will ensure the proper working condition of the building structures and eliminate unnecessary expenses for the forced repair of the building elements of your home. If finances permit, it is worth considering the installation of heating or ventilation systems. In this case, it will be possible to start the internal rough work – plastering, filling the walls and filling the floors in winter. But it is better to abstain from the exterior decoration of the house in the cold season, they say in H + H.
