Beautiful historical architecture and building work is a treat to have in our country and communities. It is vital to ensure that these are properly taken care of if we want to enjoy our structural treasures long into the future! The Palace of Westminster has been in the news recently for the long overdue work that needs to take place on it, building to enormous prices as the work wasn't done in a timely manner when problems first started to arise.
Here in Oxfordshire we have some of the most beautiful and old buildings in the country, if not in Europe, and as the premiere roofing company in Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Gloucestershire - we know a thing or two about the roofs in this county! We have been involved in preserving, restoring, and mending all sorts of historical roofs to keep them looking gorgeous and authentic for generations to come.
Historical roofs tend to be made from different materials and by different techniques to modern roofs, and it is important to get experienced and knowledgeable roofing contractors in who can take the specialist steps necessary to preserve these historical roofs in all their glory. Our artisanal roof experts can perform repair and maintenance work on a variety of historical roof types.
For instance, many historical roofs are made from lead building materials, and we provide a broad range of services for the preservation and support of lead roofs, including lead valley replacement, lead gutter replacement, and lead hip replacements.
Beyond lead, we also work with many types of stone which provide much of the characteristic charm of Oxfordshire. After all, Oxford is known as the city of "dreaming spires" and, if you look across the city on a clear evening, you will see many beautiful roofs rising high into the sky. We can support the upkeep of these and many other kinds of roofs, including stone slating and ridging, as well as handmade clay tiles and ridges. For more information, give us a call today.
