Heritage

We are highly skilled contractors with extensive experience working on projects with heritage requirements such as listed buildings or properties within conservation areas. Whether we’re working within the Crown Estate or on a historic church, we’ll liaise closely with the appointed surveyor and relevant planning organisations to ensure that all our work is completed according to the highest standard and within the necessary guidelines. We combine traditional techniques with modern construction knowledge, producing durable results that preserve a building’s character.

Heritage expertise

Our skillset combines roofing and restoration expertise, making us the ideal choice for a wide range of restoration projects. These services naturally complement one another – the scaffolding erected during a roof renewal on your historic property provides the perfect opportunity to also restore its façade by cleaning brickwork or repairing sash windows. We can work to the specification provided by your appointed surveyor, or we can carry out a site survey and advise you on the most practical, efficient course of action for your property. However you wish to proceed, we’ll be able to provide the professional support your property requires.

Our key areas of heritage expertise include:

Roofing

Roofing

We are members of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC), with repair and renewal expertise that covers flat and pitched roof types. Our team has extensive experience with traditional roofing materials and techniques, specialising in natural slate and handmade clay tile roofs. We can also provide a number of other roofing options, including bituminous felt membranes that can be used waterproof historic flat roofs.

Leadwork

Leadwork

Our team contains highly skilled leadworkers with specialist knowledge of historic property types throughout London and the surrounding Home Counties. Covering everything from lead flat roofs through to flashings and decorative leadwork elements, we deliver high quality results that comply with all the latest industry guidelines and developments. This allows the work we produce to have an intended lifespan of up to 150 years.

Brickwork

Brickwork

We are accredited within the Stonehealth Rosette Scheme and have invested in their TORC system to ensure that we have the equipment we need to provide the best possible brickwork and stone cleaning service. This is a key component of our heritage and external restoration services, alongside a wide range of options for stucco, pointing, and rendering that can be used to renew and preserve the character of a building’s historic exterior.
