Replacement of Slated Roof in Hampstead
The original slate covering was nearing the end of its life and the
box gutters required replacement. The client wanted to coordinate
the roofing works with planned external redecoration to make best
use of the scaffolding that was required for all trades on site. The
entire roof was stripped of the original coverings and the coping
stones removed from the roof parapet walls. The box gutters were
recovered using torch-on polyester membranes and the sloping
areas prepared and recovered using new vapour-permeable
underfelt and preservative-treated slate battens. New Spanish
quarried slates were selected by the client and fitted together with
new matching ridge tiles. The chimney stacks were overhauled
and lead flashings fitted before the new coping stones completed
the roof refurbishment.
