Once oven housing is built, it needs protecting from the elements with a roof.


The roof is constructed on a wooden framework running around the walls, with a space for the chimney.Roof 1
The chimney has been built tall enough for the smoke to be drawn away. Before that, the baker or pizza-man was sure to finish the day "smoked".Roof 2
Roof is then covered with boards, fixed to the framework.Roof 3
The whole is then covered with bitumen tiles.Roof 4
Next the edges and around the chimney are protected from water infiltration by aluminium flashings and silicone sealant.Roof 5
Finally a cover is added to the chimney supported on 2 bricks.
