Renewing Your Roof
If taken care of roofs will last for many years without the need for replacement but there comes a time when it may be neccessary due to the actual age of the house.

Deterioration of roof battens, broken tiles or slates, rotten barge boards and degraded roof linings are the most common reason for rooof repairs.

Description Of Leadwork Tasks

The tasks shown below offer three examples of leadwork tasks undertaken by Ernie Mew & Sons Limited. Two show repairs undertaken of a small half roof, which was leaking through rotting timbers and cracked leadwork producing leakage. The new lead roof shows a domestic task that we completed for a local builder and lastly, pre-war house in many cities were constructed with exposed firewalls, as shown in the photographs. Over time and weather worn the brickwork cement erodes and leakage occurs. Once this happens it is not long before leaks appear inside the loft and interior walls causing damage and damp. Renovating firewalls is therefore a common task that we undertake.
