- Natural slate roofs for twelve properties
- 80 square metre lead flat roof
- Associated timber and joinery work
We conducted an initial survey of the site, liaising with the appointed surveyor so that an accurate specification could be drawn up. The project was then priced and carried out according to this specification. As these works took place within the Crown Estate, we had to work closely with the Crown Estate Paving Commission and Crown Estate Gardens to manage the project effectively and ensure that all the affected residents were kept up to date with our progress.
As this was a sensitive area it was essential that we fully complied with Crown Estate regulations. All the slate used needed to be colour matched to the surrounding area. We provided a range of samples at different price points, so that the client and their appointed surveyor could select the most appropriate option. All leadwork also had to be completed using the latest industry guidelines. This meant working with the surveyor to determine the size of the lead roof bays so that they met the necessary length and width requirements. Leadwork is expected to last for up to 150 years following installation and failing to meet the guidelines increases the chance that the lead would split. Finally, since the multiresidential site remained inhabited throughout the project, we needed to build a good rapport with residents, encouraging them to approach us with any questions or comments.
