When the tiled roof of your heritage property needs restoration, it’s important to find specialists who know exactly what they are doing. The original tiles may last up to 100 years, however they can eventually become damaged or loose. Restoring them is an investment that can extend the life of your roof up to another 100 years – or perhaps even longer. First Class Slate is experienced and proven in restoration and replacement projects. Using traditional techniques and only the best materials, we can match and replace damaged or missing tiles, or alternatively restore an entire roof surface to its former glory. On top of this, we can also restore and replace lead roof flashing and copper work.
What Types of Projects Require Restoration for Heritage Tiles?
There are a number of building types that may require heritage roof tile restorations. These include:
- 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.
