The roof and roof timbers are distinguishing features of a listed building and with expert workmanship they will last for many more years.
Historic building roof repairs or renovations should always match the original materials such as Kent Peg Tiles or Welsh Slate. Wherever possible we will repair rather than replace and use salvaged and reclaimed materials or natural alternatives.
In addition to roof repairs to buildings of special architectural or historic interest, other features such as chimney stacks and pots may need repointing or replacing.
Here at SWM Roofing our staff have extensive experience of working on historic buildings and we can help you liaise with conservation officers, source the original materials and advise how to reuse existing roofing materials. Read about our expertise with Kent Peg Tiles here.
