Way In Building & Civil Construction

The ceiling is a part or upper surface that functions as a protector, covering a particular room or home, closing it entirely. It is an element of protection, of covering, whose function is to cover a certain space or to protect it from anything that may arise outdoors.

The exclusive function of a roof is to protect the individual and the corresponding building from all the implications generated by atmospheric conditions. Among the maximum benefits of roofs is their impermeability, that is, their ability to prohibit the entry of water. The roof is, in essence, a cover, both upper and interior. When the roof is high, then we are already talking about a roof. This corresponds to when there is more than one component element of such a roof. The roof encompasses a set of pieces that make up the roof of a building. The roof would come to be composed of the structure and all the devices that give the closure to the roofs. It is also known as a frame, precisely because of its work of supporting both its own weight and the weight of the roof and the roof, which are always susceptible to strong winds or any other climatic phenomenon.

Roofs construction

We have already seen that roofs are synonymous with roofs. When building the roofs – these are related to the idea of a set of elements that is attached to the general structure – two fundamental things must be taken into account: the mooring system (ensuring the union of something by using ropes) and the material with which you want to build the roof itself, which of course must present an enormous resistance to any external threat. Now let’s look at their composition. These are formed as a result of the union of different planes, which are known as skirts. These skirts, in turn, are divided by files, sort of dots or edges that separate the planes in different ways and hence there are different subdivisions. If a file functions as a centripetal force, that is, if its movement takes place towards the center, it is called limahoyas. If, on the other hand, the movement takes place centrifugally outwards, the files are called limatesas. There is a third denomination for the edges separators of planes called files of break.

In addition to this, and as the ceilings operate as protective summits, there is a file that finishes off the construction, located in the upper part, operating as a coronation. It is called a ridge or easel. In short, all these files belong to a greater category, which is that of the annexes that complete the construction of the roof.

The skylights and corners also form part of this group. The roof will generally define the type of general construction to which it belongs, hence there are different variants. For example, the materials used can be of different kinds: zinc, clay, synthetic fiber, wood, glass and even plastic. Of course, the way in which the roof is used or constructed will also be different. In this sense, there are two clearly defined positions. There are flat roofs, which have a smooth and unrelieved surface. And there is also the option of using inclined ceilings.ceilings-materials

Roof types

When it comes to choosing a particular type of roof, there are several types. On the one hand, there are “two-way”, “three-way” and even “four-way” roofs and roofs with only one slope, i.e., those that have only one place or spring through which the water can flow. All these possibilities make up the slopes of the roofs, that is, the inclinations with which they are built so that the water can be expelled in the most practical way possible. Due to the fact that the roof is a surface that at the top closes a room or ends up covering a space, this term is also used to denominate every maximum instance that can be reached in any matter of an emotional or commercial nature, precisely because the roofs are synonyms of the highest point that can be reached.
