We work closely with private landlords and letting agencies with regard to the roofing maintenance and repair of their property portfolios throughout the North West.
Strip and Re-slates
We will carefully remove your existing slates putting them aside for re-use, then we will install a good quality breathable membrain with new treated battens secured with galvanised nails.
The exising slates are then nailed back on with 40mm galvanised clout nails, any slates that have been broken will be replaced with slates of the same quarry and appearance – no cheap imports are ever used as this spoils the appearance of the finished roof.
Cut Edge Corrosion
Cut Edge corrosion occurs when the ends of metal cladding begin to delaminate and cause serious product decay. If this problem is not addressed quickly it can eat into the metal sheeting causing possible leaks into the building.
We can remedy this corrosion process with our unique 3 coat waterproofing system that is insurance backed with warranties.

Dry Verge / Ridge Systems
Dry Ridge refers to a method of mechanically fixing ridge tiles or hip ridge tiles without the use of traditional sand and cement mortor.
