Historical & Listed Building Roofing Restoration Services
As experts in heritage roofing services, we have more than 30 years of experience providing solutions to commercial and residential clients. We can undertake heritage roofing projects on all types of historical buildings. Heritage roofing basically means roof covering works carried out with traditional materials and workmanship to buildings with a historic value (such as stately homes or listed buildings). This is to preserve the heritage of a building as the construction methods and materials used usually differ from modern practices.
When it comes to your listed or historical building, you want to ensure that you choose a contractor with experience in the trade. Especially as in many cases, such as with many churches, funds are raised by the community, so you want to ensure the job is done correctly and the money is put to good use.
Professional Chimney Repointing In Corby
Chimney repointing is a process which involves renewing the original mortar in the brickwork of a chimney, which normally becomes worn down over time and no longer provides a secure and watertight solution for a building. Old mortar is replaced with new mortar which will help the chimney to last for many more years to come. Mortar joints can generally last around 25 years before needing to be replaced, and many historic buildings we see tend to be long overdue for a chimney repoint. We can provide chimney repointing services to historical buildings of all sizes and ages.
Flashing are thin pieces of impervious materials installed to create a watertight seal between a roof and the surrounding brickwork. Flashing is usually made from lead, aluminium, copper, stainless steel, zinc and more. Often on church roofs and historical buildings, these are made from lead and copper and are susceptible to the elements and theft. We can provide the careful restoration of roof flashing, to ensure your building remains watertight for many years to come.
