OverviewOnce 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.|
|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 is then covered with boards, fixed to the framework.|
|The whole is then covered with bitumen tiles.|
|Next the edges and around the chimney are protected from water infiltration by aluminium flashings and silicone sealant.|
|Finally a cover is added to the chimney supported on 2 bricks.|
