ALBACORE CRES in Catford SE13

ALBACORE CRES

The project involved a complete refurbishment of main and extension roofs on the property. Both roofs needed to be completely stripped, which involved stripping off the old interlocking tiles along with the battens and the bituminous felt.

The main roof required the old timber work to be removed and disposed off responsibly. Additionally, we did repairs to parapet wall - pointing, mesh reinforcing, scratch and top code of render. We set up a new roof structure - building up trusses, laying out quilted insulation, setting out breathable membrane, eaves protection strip, and battens and laying out artificial slates. The use of artificial slates reduced the weight of the roof and made installation simpler and, therefore, quicker than when using natural slates. Likewise the use of a Uni-Vent Rapid Ridge System® offers a modern and effective approach to ensuring secure and watertight fixing for the ridge and hip tiles. Fitting new fascias and guttering, repointed the main chimney and undertook lead work all around – apron and step flashing.

For the extension roof, we needed to install new the rafters along side the old rafters due to significant damage to the old one. The ceiling board were fixed to old rafters, so the old one had stay untouched. Then we   prior to setting out a breathable membrane, eaves protection strip and battens, laying out artificial slates. Artificial slates are often preferable to genuine slate tiles for extensions as they are lighter and, therefore, place fewer structural demands on the fabric of the extension.
