Roofing Company Whitehaven

As established roofers in Whitehaven, we often cover this part of Cumbria, serving many of our clients. Abbey Roofing have been visiting here for over 20 years, working on various roofing projects which include flat roofs, pitched slate & tiled roofs.

The town of Whitehaven has it all in this Harbour town that it’s in. Hosting a thriving port, importing tobacco from the U.S. and exporting coal during the 18th & 19th century, You only need to walk around this historic town to realise the importance and wealth it once had.

Georgian Architecture in WhitehavenRoofing Company Whitehaven

Grand Georgian architecture is still very prominent in Whitehaven. It’s the most complete example of town planning from the Georgian era. Low-pitched slate roofs form behind a parapet wall that will accommodate all the water drainage, out of sight from street level. Pictured here is the Lloyds Bank building on Lowther street.  Due to substantial refurbishment, back in around 2006 we replaced all the lead gutters behind the parapet wall on the main roof. The roof was re-slated across over 75% of the main roof area with Westmorland green slates. As a result, the roof was restored to heritage standard.  Get in Touch if you’re in need of roofing in Whitehaven or surrounding areas such as:

  • Bransty,

 

Roofing Company Whitehaven

We also carry out joinery work as well as Slate and flat roofing. There’s a lot of joinery and wood working in roofing.

We recently repaired a Sliding sash window on a Georgian town house at Collage street, Whitehaven,

This is a beautifully restored, perfect example of some types of historic buildings in Whitehaven, Cumbria.

The windows were repaired with Accoya wood, due to its ‘modified timber’. It is subjected to a chemical process that changes the cell structure, preventing its ability to hold moisture. rot or decay.

This is just one of the many roofing services of Abbey roofing. Please click the link for a video on the restoration at Collage street:  https://youtu.be/7BjduhtFJsQ

Prompt response, arrived to look at job when he said, gave a thorough account of what needed done, we agreed a price. The next fine day he arrived early with another worker and job done before end of day. Prompt, efficient, professional and reliable. My old cast iron guttering now looks like new and doesn't leak....hurray! Thanks James.

We’ve been restoring a house in Cumbria and over the years we’ve had tradespeople from across the spectrum. I can comfortably say that Jim and his team are in the very top of the list in terms of quality, price and service. They did a flat roof for us, some lead work and a variety of other external work, all of the highest quality. If Jim provides the service, you need look nowhere else. We’d trust him with any job, large or small.

Jim and Chris recently carried out outstanding work to our fibreglass roof on a listed building. We were delighted with the standard of workmanship, service, communication and the 25 year guarantee. The work was carried out in a timely and professional manner and was also reasonable in terms of cost. We were lucky to get some dry weather and guys that really know what they are doing. Thanks Jim, much appreciated! I will recommend you to family, friends and anyone I come across!
