Old School House, Maentwrog, Snowdonia
Even if this exceptional roof, with its small banded slate designs, had qualified for grants the only solution would have been to strip and re-lay with conventional 20" x 10"s slates (which would also have destroyed the lathe and plaster between the revealed rafters in the interior of the house).

A comparison of the photos will show the detailed work that has been done: new cast iron gutters and downpipes; fleur de lys ridge tiles (on the dormers only – cost was prohibitive for the main ridge); straightening out the line of the main ridge; painting and repair of all bargeboards; replacement of fascias; new leaded valleys; all finials removed, repaired, painted and replaced; very extensive structural repairs to the tower (which, upon close examination, proved to be in imminent danger of going walkabout) and finally the re-painting of the tower.

All work was done without conventional scaffolding – rope access techniques used as required – with huge cost savings to the client.

St. John's Church, Worksop (Grade 2 listed)
For this contract we competed against quotes of: around £45,000 (+ VAT + scaffold costs) for re-tiling with artificial reconstituted slate or around £64,000 for re-slating. Savings of around £30,000 on re-tiling and around £48,000 on re-slating.

Small house conversion near Blaenau Ffestiniog, North Wales
This house was in a state of imminent dereliction. Even though part of the roof (lower front half) was too far gone and needed re-slating, the client still had well over 50% savings on re-slating and was delighted to end up with a roof that combined function with character.

Bryn Teg, Dolgellau, Snowdonia (Grade 2 listed)
Bryn Teg is a listed building with a roof that was in exceptionally poor condition and almost beyond salvation. It worked out at possibly the most expensive job we have ever done per square metre at around £35, but still cost less than half the cost of re-slating with new slates. Scaffolding costs were also saved.
