Roofs are an important feature of old buildings both historically and aesthetically. The roof structure is usually one of the methods used to date an early timber framed building. The roof is also the first line of defence against water penetration.
When it comes to roof repair and replacement Stone Edge Conservation use the five basic maxims of building conservation. ‘Conserve as found’ with ‘minimum intervention’, ‘like for like repairs’, ‘repairs should be reversible’ and should be ’sympathetic’. These philosophies must be tempered with responsibility for the safety and structural integrity of historic buildings and for the safety of the building users.
Stone Edge Conservation will help you find the correct approach for conservation based solutions to all your roof structure defects within a historic building.
