Charcon's MODUROOF® offers a range of fast, complete roofing solutions with design flexibility in space arrangement and level of finish required.
Available in three production options – Light, Advance and Complete, MODUROOF® pods ensure the fast completion of timber roofed buildings. They are designed to meet a client’s requirements, be it a simple shell roof, a conversion ready unit or fully finished loft, complete with finishes and flooring.
Bespoke details can also be incorporated into the design, such as dormer windows and chimneys.
Tiling is fitted offsite at the manufacturing stage with any overlapping areas finished quickly onsite.
The innovative prefabricated roof units are manufactured offsite and indoors in dedicated facilities, ensuring build accuracy, time efficiency and total program control.
The MODUROOF® pods are delivered just when needed, eliminating storage requirements and maximising crane time, while reducing ancillary overheads such as scaffolding and labour. This forms part of Charcon’s comprehensive design, manufacture, supply and installation service.A complete roof of four modules fitted per day, with a day for sealing and connections
MODUROOF® pods are produced using certified and sustainably sourced timber in a controlled manufacturing environment.
A roof pod for a typical three bedroom semi-detached home is produced as two modules, with a gable either attached to one, or made as a separate piece. These are craned onto the wall plate and secured by Charcon's expert fixing crew.
Once fitted, it only remains for the join line to be felted and tiled, and interior edges sealed and skimmed to make the roof space ready for use.
The roof units can be fitted with various and multiple types of insulation, and include cavity space for mechanical ventilation, water tanks and storage.
Comprising a basic shell roof based on a fink truss (‘W’) configuration with insulation between the rafters and floor joists. This option is ideal for more economical projects, such as social housing, and provides a secure roof with a small area capacity for light storage.

Prepped for conversion and ready for use as storage space, the Advance unit uses stronger timber for a wider open space between rafters to accommodate a functional living space at a later stage.
Advance is the perfect option for growing families requiring more room in the future. Standard features include wiring and plumbing to a terminal point, particle board flooring, a larger loft hatch and support for the addition of skylights.

Flexibility is key in terms of MODUROOF® design and all three options can accommodate bespoke details, although there is more scope for this with the Advance and Complete roof units. Items such as flooring systems, windows, chimneys, skylights and stair openings can be specified by the client. As with all Charcon products, MODUROOF® can be integrated with related solutions such as Quad-Lock ICF, Granab acoustic flooring and precast stairs and landings.
Designed and built entirely to bespoke requirements or based on an existing option with minor customisation
MODUROOF® sections are designed for safe, escort free transportation by trailer from manufacturing facility to site where they are then craned into position.
Modular pods are boarded up to protect the internal structure and finishes from the elements. Flexing is prevented through a patented removable bracing system.
Delivered mostly tiled with exposed areas completed once all modules are fixed
Roofing for a typical pair of semi detached houses will generally be fitted in four modules, two per unit. Modules are fitted without damage or cracking to the structure's fixtures and finishes - including built in skylights and tiles. Under the direction of a skilled installation team, a complete roof and waterproofed house can be achieved within a day.
Modules are quickly slotted into position with a regular crane and Charcon's skilled fixing crews
