Do you want a new roof that still looks traditional?

Roofing in the areas around Wrexham, Cheshire, Oswestry and Shropshire, we find that one of the concerns of many of our customers is to keep their property looking traditional.

New Roof At Traditional Property Near Oswestry

The whole of this roof needed replacing. That included insulation, timbers, barge boards, soffits, fascias, felt, battens and gutters. Even the chimney and chimney pot needed looking at and new lead installing.

However, many of the original slates and the ridge tiles were still in excellent condition. Where possible we always try to reuse original materials because it saves on cost. It also helps with environmental concerns.

New Roof Materials

We began by carefully removing the old ridge tiles and any original slates that were still in good condition. Once the original roof materials had been stripped, we began to replace them with new. The new materials include insulation so that the property is warmer and also helps to save energy costs. Next, we installed new timbers where necessary and new felt and battens. This provided a stable base for the next phase which was the installation of new Spanish slate tiles on one side of the roof.

Traditional Roof Materials Re-Used

There were a lot of original tiles in good condition that we felt were too good to throw away. We made careful use of this to fully re-tile one side of the roof. Therefore this gives the property a very traditional appearance on that side. Re-use of the ridge tiles also complements the well-established appearance.

Chimney and Finishing

The chimney is in fairly good order, however, new lead flashing now provides a secure seal and keeps the property watertight. The original chimney pot was also in poor condition so this was replaced with new.

uPVC barge boards, soffits, fascias and guttering finish the new roof and provide a clean, tidy appearance.
