New tiled roof - Bratton Fleming

New tiled roof - Bratton Fleming

Our client in Bratton Fleming wanted a total reroof as his existing Barnstaple interlocking tiles had become quite thin due to the sand faced surface wearing down over the years.

To the rear of the property there is a loft bedroom with bathroom and toilet. It was clad in plain tiles with purpose made angle tiles for the corners.

The whole roof and vertical tiling was stripped along with the Batten’s and old 1f felt. Breathable membrane was applied along with graded 50mm x 25mm roofing Batten’s and eave trays.

The pitched roof was tiled using Redland Renowns, Breckland Brown in colour, with individual dry verge and dry ridge system.

The vertical was tiled with Redland plain tiles and new angle tiles again in Breckland Brown.

Full roof replacement at West Down

Full roof replacement at West Down

Replaced the whole of this roof at West Down and as you can see from the before photos there was a mixture of slates due to lots of repairs and the stacks had copper flashing which I have only seen a couple of times in my 44 years in this trade. New Brazilian slates with hook fix and chimneys with lead flashing give an altogether more appealing look and no more worries for the customer about slates coming down in bad weather.

My thanks to Matt and Ryan of MR scaffolding for doing a great job with the challenge of the full length conservatory on the rear of the property.

Thanks to Mr and Mrs Williams also for keeping us supplied with tea and biscuits!

Below are the "before" pictures, now they can look forward to a dry winter!!

New slate roof for SEL Clarke Ltd

New slate roof for SEL Clarke Ltd

Latest roof completed for our client Roger Clarke of local business SEL Clarke Ltd.

This roof has close on 7000 slates with 6 velux windows and solar panels which are being installed now we have finished. Some testing conditions were experienced on this one as it is in West Down so close to the coast. 

All slates are hook fixed and all perimeters nailed and ridge is dry system.

Valleys formed with code 5 lead and for all the gables we used easyverge which eliminates any wind uplift.

Still got a GRP roof to do on the front entrance which should be completed this week. We have had the Gel top coat specially mixed so the colour will match the facias.

New Slate roof in Abbotsham, Bideford, North Devon

New Slate roof in Abbotsham, Bideford, North Devon

This new Slate Roof job was recently completed in Abbotsham, North Devon. It was a complete strip of the existing roof then recovered with Brazilian Grey Green slates and hook fix.

Terracotta ridge dry fixed really sets the roof off nicely and the Easyverge system gives added protection from the wind as this property is right next to the coast.

You can see from the stunning pictures below.  It got quite windy up on that roof !!

Before and After - Tiles to Slates

Before and After - Tiles to Slates

The above picture was taken BEFORE we started work

The client called us to ask for different options on what could be put on his roof as the old clay tiles had seen better days and there was no insulation in the loft. We took several different tiles and slates as samples and it was decided that Brazilian slates with hook fix would be used. A contrasting terracotta ridge and hip really set the slates off and the client was delighted with his new roof and insulated loft. From start to finish the job took us 7 days which with all the valley and hip cutting was quite good.

This was the excellent result!
