Mrs Hargreaves from Purley got in touch with us at Collier Roofing because she was becoming very concerned about her roof, which consisted of the original 1930s tiles. The roof was reaching the end of its natural life and had started leaking. The client was very keen to retain the look of the original tiles, which were naturally in keeping with the period of the property. Our experienced team gave her the reassurance that the new roof would be sensitive to the original, while being a very strong and long-lasting replacement, and together we agreed the extent of the work that needed to be carried out, and set the budget.
New roof in Purley
A new lease of life
The team at Collier Roofing quickly got to work to remove the old and perished materials right back to the rafters. We then installed a new breathable membrane to provide an extra barrier against the elements, and hard-wearing battens, which are specially treated to resist damp. The roof now had a strong underpinning for the brand-new tiles. To complement the age of the property, we used market-leading Redland 49 concrete tiles, which were in keeping with the rest of the houses on the street, and have a unique camber, making them particularly strong.
Completing the job
To finish the job, the team put in top-quality, long-lasting lead valleys to ensure a smooth run-off for rainwater. The lead valleys are also an attractive addition to a traditional pitched roof on a period property.
A roof to be proud of
Mrs Hargreaves is delighted with her new roof, which now provides excellent insulation and complete protection from the elements, using the very best modern materials, while remaining in keeping with the rest of the houses on the street.
