Project Description: The outline brief for the project was to provide a like for like replacement of the roof coverings but carry out all of the work in accordance with modern standards using traditional roofing methods. This Grade II listed building required a sensitive overhaul of the roof coverings so that the original character and details of the property could be maintained. The roof coverings on the building were removed and the slates salvaged so far as possible. The extensive central lead roof coverings were also removed pending replacement.The roof deck on the flat roof area was re-boarded and designed so as to ensure compliance with Lead Sheet Association guidelines. Our client was very pleased with the outcome of this project and since its execution we have successfully secured and carried out a further three high quality re-roofing and lead work projects on the same site for the same client.
