Question about Roofing In Jamaica


Hi, I'm building a two bedroom house in St. Elizabeth. I'm at a stand still at the moment however.

All the walls are up but I cant get anyone to help me figure out if decking the roof or using the decorative roofing is the cheapest way to way.

I'm still in awe to think that there are so many persons who do construction even my own workers yet they are unable to give me proper guidance as the way to go.

I cant find anyone to work out how much cement and steel it would take versus the 2*6 and other roofing materials for the decorative roofs. From your stand point what do you think would work out cheaper?

Answer
Hi Tatyana,
Sorry I don't know at lot about the construction industry but I'll open it up to my friends and fans who might be more in tunded with this area.
I'll allow them to add their comments & feedback here.

Just stay in touch and watch the feedback OK?

Regards,
Wellesley

I am near in completion of a property that I am building in St Elizabeth, I am was born in Jamaica and have lived in England for nearly all my life, I found when I wanted to start building in Jamaica I could not get a accurate estimate of what the build would cost me, I have always kept accounts for my business in England so here was a ideal opportunity for me to use my skills, I order all my materials and contract all labours and trades men.
A full account of money spent can be supplied at all times..Please contact me for recommended..Roofers..block layers..plumbers..electricians..and the cost of building materials..What are the costs?.Please call Derick for all construction costs..

I agree that cement roof will be more cost effective in the long run. Most people (that I know) with zinc roofs los pieces and more damage for Ivan.

I am planning build a small 2/2 in St. Elizabeth to. We have the land. We hope to start with in the next year.

I am curious as the cost of putting in the foundation. We will need a backhoe for excavation as he soil is tough (sandstone).

We will purchase materials at Parchment and hire some one in the area to do the work.

Can you give me an idea of what it will cost for he backhoe, materials and labor for the foundation?
Thanks.

I would suggest to cement the roof- more durable and longer lasting which then makes it more cost effective. You wouldn't have the worry of your roof blowing off and it is actually cheaper.

Good luck
