Kincoppal-Rose Bay – Water Tower

Kincoppal-Rose Bay was founded in 1882 and is located in Rose Bay, Sydney, on the Sydney Harbour foreshore.

First Class Slate Roofing was engaged to restore the water tower back to its former glory as it previously had zinc roof cladding, which was installed in the late 70s. Originally, the water tower had Welsh Penryhn slates with lead ridge capping so we undertook the restoration and also restored the cedar doors and capped all the sills in lead.
