Traditional re-roof of a barn
Meadow Barn was roofed in an old yet traditional roofing technique known as lacing, which is very rarely used today. Valleys are laced with tiles instead of using valley tiles or lead in the valleys; hence making up the lace effect.
All lead flashings are carefully positioned in-place to all abutments, but have been hidden with tile fillets.
This job was finished in handmade Tudor tiles and is a featured property in one of the printed Tudor range brochures.
Brickette chimney re-build, Lurgashall
This wonderful period cottage located in Lurgashall, West Sussex was in major need of restoration to the chimney as a result of over 100 years of erosion.
The owners wanted to retain the old brickettes from the structure, ensuring that the property maintained it’s charm and character.
Every brickette from this period property are a lot smaller than today’s standard style of brick. This resulted in the team cutting one-by-one, second-hand bricks by hand, to replicate the older style brickettes. The chimney was then re-built using line mortar mix.
Modern re-roof in Busbridge, Godalming
This great property in Godalming was suffering from the increasingly common laminating of tiles effect, due to severe winters we have experienced over the last couple of years.
The original roof was built using machine-made clay tiles, which often carry only a 30 year guarantee and the inevitable laminating effect in extreme conditions.
The roof was re-built using upgraded concrete tiles, which perform much better under variable weathering yet look exactly like clay tiles. These upgraded tiles carry a longer guarantee of up to 100 years and as such will not require any roofing re-builds for a prolonged period.
