What Projects can be Restored with Heritage Tiles?
At First Class Slate, we can restore heritage roof tiles to a range of building types including:
- Schools and universities
- Cathedrals and Churches
- Hospitals and public buildings
- Residential and commercial properties
One of our recent and sizeable restoration projects was the Thomas Walker Convalescent Hospital in Concord, built in the 1890s. We restored the terracotta shingles of its extraordinary buildings to their former beauty, which will now last well into the future.
If you replace the tiles with modern alternatives this would destroy the aesthetics and integrity of the heritage building. This is why it is so important to trust the best restorers for the job.
