Stripping Roof & Replace New Felt and Battens
This process occurs when you are having a new roof. Your old roof will be stripped bare. New breathable membrane and tanalised treated battens are fixed into place.
Lead Valleys / Flashings
All Valleys are and flashings are replaced as required.
Fixing Slates / Tiles
New tiles / slates are stacked onto the roof and are then fitted and fixed into place.
. Gutter bonding is needed only with terraced or semi dethatched houses. It is fitted to the adjoining neighbours roof. As you can see everything is put back into place.
Dry Verge Units are fitted
Dry verge units will be fitted where necessary and these are fitted on the gable ends of the roof. If your roof is terraced then you will not require the dry verge units
Maintenance Free Dry Ridge Tile Systems
Maintenance free dry ridge tiles are the last to be fitted, it is a more efficient product than original ridgetiles, as they required cement to keep them in place. The cement holding the tiles together would often perished and require continuous maintenance. The system we use today is totally maintenance free.
