Over the last 32 years we have worked on 100s of church roofs. Ecclesiastical work is our forte and our craftsmen have vast experience in working on all styles of church roofs using many different types of materials.
Church roof styles
We are about to start work on our smallest church roof ever, the delightful Grade II* Chapel of St Mary in Chitterne, Wiltshire.
Our roofing team have worked on many historically important churches, including the dramatic Quarr Abbey on the Isle of White, the Grade II* All Saint’s Church in Berkshire, and the Grade I listed St Sampson’s Church in Wiltshire.
One of our longest running projects is the three-phase reroof of St Mary’s Church. We have had the pleasure of working on all three of the churches that make up the Parish of Three Saints in Somerset.
We often work closely with architectural firms when reroofing churches. Such as the St Nicolas Church in Newbury, where we partnered with Andrew Townsend Architects, who we have been working with for well over 20 years.
Church roof coverings
We use traditional roofing methods and quality materials. We pride ourselves in our attention to detail and our ability to reuse existing materials where possible. All new tiles we use are colour matched and meticulously chosen for their patina and weathering qualities.
Tiles and materials we have worked with include:
- Natural stone slate
- Handmade clay tiles
- Cotswold stone slate
- Sand cast lead
- Recast lead box gutters
- Gilded weathervanes
- Oak shakes
- Masonry repairs
- Clock face restoration
- Stain glass window restoration
High quality craftsmanship
Our vast ecclesiastical knowledge, coupled with complex roof restoration experience, allows us to complete any church roofing project to the highest quality.
