- Client: Private
- Location: Deal
- Value: 5-50k
- Type: Historic Restoration of a Victorian Lead Roof
- Duration: 5 days
This restoration took place on a prestige home in Deal in Kent. The front entrance porch to the property is of an open 3 sided construction across an internal corner, sheltering the front door. The lead roof, which was replaced, was original to the property constructed in the late Victorian era (1896) and the lead had come to the end of its lifespan. Constant expansion and contraction of the lead had caused it to tear and degrade beyond salvageable use. The roof amazingly required little in the way of timber repair and the new Code 5 lead covering has been carefully and expertly placed to fully enhance the structure and bring the whole porch back to life. Very satisfying project and a tradesman’s quality finish rarely seen these days!
