|Location:||Easingwold, North Yorkshire|
|Project Description:||This project involved our replacing the existing pantile roof covering on this large, Grade II listed, detached farmhouse north of York.
All of the existing coping stones were loose, and were removed and set aside in preparation for re-fixing. Both chimney stacks also needed to be re-built which we undertook as part of the scheme. As with most of our work, there was a significant amount of lead work to be completed as well; in this instance, the chimneys and abutments both required new flashings to be supplied and correctly installed, in accordance with Lead Sheet Association guidelines.
The roof coverings were stripped, and a new breathable membrane and battens were installed; then the new handmade pantiles were installed. This constituted a like-for-like replacement, thereby negating the need to gain listed building consent, which can become problematic and overly circuitous. New stone kneelers, to the base of the copings, were also installed as part of the scheme.
