Materials Used: Reclaimed Westmorland slates
Code 5 lead

Project Duration / Client 4 weeks / Private client – Involvement from Peter Thompson of York
Project Description: The roof coverings on this historic property had reached the end of their useful life. The lead roof coverings to the dormers, despite being recent, had been incorrectly installed.
As a result, the client instructed us to completely overhaul the roof coverings to the rear of their property and create a maintenance free solution to the three large dormer windows. Working with Peter Thompson of York we were able to provide a GRP soffit detail which will not require painting or future maintenance. Further, the windows were replaced in a traditional style. As with all re-roofing or partial re-roofing projects the opportunity was taken to improve the insulation levels in the property by introducing a significant level of rigid insulation where appropriate.
The project was a success both in terms of aesthetics and function.
