Slate roofing is getting increasing popular in contemporary times because of the benefits derived from installing slate roof on the home. Slate roof is fire proof and environmentally friendly. In addition, it is very durable and confers a certain aesthetic appeal that makes your building stand out. But there are various types of slate roofing, which can sometimes make choosing the right one confusing. Often, there are questions about the different types, how durable, how much they cost and how easy it is to have them installed.
Tiled conservatory roofs are affordable and ideal roofing solutions that are an excellent choice for your home. You can consult with a professional installer and have the work done right.
What You Must Know About GRP Fibreglass Roofing
What is GRP Fibreglass Roofing?
GRP or glass reinforced polyester is a single-ply laminate material made of plastic strengthened with fine, glass fibres. (more…)
Solid roof conservatory styles have generated a buzz because of the many benefits they offer. One of the key advantages of this type of roof is the fact that they don’t let in too much heat in the warmer months. They provide insulation that helps to keep the temperature consistent within the conservatory.
There’s a huge number of holiday and residential park homes across the Cumbrian Lake-district because of the natural beauty it’s easy to see why…
We are a roofing company that specialises in GRP fibreglass flat roofing and balconies with hundreds of installations throughout the Lake District. (more…)
We have come across is desmopol pure polyurethane Gutter sealant
liquid applied in a seamless liner inside the guttering ideal for old cast-iron gutters and leaking gutter joints.
There’s some dry rot in this building just starting to spread into the masonry
luckily caught just in time,
The fungus has not been given time to develop and establish its self in the timbers all the infected timber has been repaired or replaced all the rest of the timber has been treated if you are in Carlisle and need advice with dry rot issues please get InTouch, Throughout Cumbria there’s lots of older buildings with issues of dry rot,
It can be very common, not much of a problem if taken care of treated with a masonry biocide
If its still a type of orange dust this is the best time to catch it before the fungus is established,
A good dry rot treatment on all the surrounding area, all the affected wood replaced and plenty of ventilation in the roof space for air movement should do the trick if it’s in early stages
A very good quality breathable felt will help, with ventilating the roof,
If the building has solid stone walls check to see if the pointing is still in place and not missing this is usually the cause of water ingress that can cause dry rot to start with, You must make sure the external walls are keeping the damp out,
Solid sandstone walls (must not) be pointed with cement! this is the second most common cause of damp in old buildings a solid brick or stone wall, built with lime mortar needs to breath and lose its moisture content through the mortar joints,
When there pointed with cement the wall will always be wet and never dry out coursing the initial damp for the fungal spores to germinate and cause endless problems with dry rot!
We have done loads of sandstone wall pointing and have a supplier that specialises in solid walls and lime mortar mixes, Hydraulic lime mortar for sandstone walls, if the pointing is missing
On this roofing job in Carlisle we repointed the gable end (or apex) the previous builders had used a cement mortar for some general repairs, about six years before,
which has we know, did not let any of the stone work breath or lose its moisture content water trapped in the wall will freeze and cause the sandstone to then became frost damaged,
We needed to remove all the cement pointing by raking it out, and repointing with hydraulic lime, this let the wall dry out as it should, we’ve been back a few times to check on the dry rot… and not only is the dry rot gone but the whole roof space is completely dry,
the customer also informed us that she had several damp company’s out to inspect the damp and had been advised the problem was rising damp and to have the walls injected with a rising damp treatment which was of course not true,
another happy customer once the walls was all pointed and the timber was replaced with a kiln dried timber with a breathable felt and new treated batons the roof was re-slated with the existing Burlington slates making up the short-fall, and bedding the ridge tiles on at the end of the job, Below is a very informative video on this exact issue take a look!
