Sympathetic replacement of an Old Clay Tiled
Roof Using Modern Concrete Tiles
Project in Mill Green, Hertfordshire
End of terrace property required a new roof to be fitted that was
sympathetically refurbished to maintain the character of the
original materials. Scaffolding was erected and the roof was
carefully stripped and prepared before replacing with new modern
materials. These include a vapour-permeable underfelt and
preservative-treated tile battens, linked into the neighbour's
adjoining roof. New roof tiles were selected to match the original
materials and to link into the adjacent roof. New lead flashings
fitted around the chimney stack and matching ridge tiles complete
a small, but rewarding project.
