Renewal of lead roofs to Church hall/meeting room.

 

With the old lead suffering from under lead corrosion, the roofs were stripped, re-boarded and recovered using sand cast lead.  To combat the risk of the corrosion attaching the new lead a ventilation system was installed at the eaves and the abutment.  Whilst stripping out the valley gutters it was discovered the red brick parapet wall was unsafe and this had to be rebuilt.  The work also involved re-bedding and replacement of the coping stones.

 

The work was phased around the building working under temporary roofs.
