We also replaced all the damaged timber work , replaced all the lead work and removed the copes re fitting all using lime mortar with a new skew detail and lead cover flashings dressed under the copes all tied into the slating that keeps the wall head dry as the roof gets wet ,whilst maintaining the traditional stone coping.

We can supply all types of Slate like Welsh , Spanish slate and higher end slate such as westmoorland and Burlington. No matter the type of slate required to suit your property.
We can replace your scotch roof using original scotch slate or new Welsh slate in random widths and diminishing courses to match the original scotch look but the slate come with a 100 year guarantee unlike second hand slate which may be near the end of their usable lifespan.

Which is essential if the roofspace has or is planning an attic conversion or is is lived in .
