Warthill

Replacement roofs to large 1980’s built detached property in Warthill, Ryedale.

The existing clay pan tiles had perished and started to deteriorate, especially on the garage roofs. Rather than opt for installing a clay pan tile again, the client was keen on installing a high quality slate instead, to contrast the red bricks against the new blue,black slates.

Heritage Roofing York have a close working relationship with a UK based slate company called SSQ Natural Slate, having installed many new slate roofs with their various different slates they offer.

We proposed SSQ Domiz slates and SSQ Del Carmen as two potential options. The latter being much more expensive, but widely accepted within the industry as being the best quality Spanish slate on the entire market. Our clients loved the deep blue-black colour of the Del Carmen slate, along with the characteristic longitudinal grain and highly distinctive, faintly rippled texture. So much so, that even the large additional cost for these slates rather than opting for the still excellent, but cheaper Domiz slates, didn’t put them off at all.

Also we removed all the old white plastic fascias and soffits and replaced all with new foil wrapped UPVC in anthracite grey.

The old plastic gutters and downpipes were removed and we specified and installed new “Alumasc Infinity” steel gutters and downpipes in powder coated black colour.

The two old flat roofs have been removed and we installed new flat roofs formed out of code 6 lead and mopstick rolls, to vastly improve the aesthetics of the property.

The end result is absolutely stunning and we are very pleased and proud to have been a part of this fantastic project, right from the early planning stages through to completion.

The loft space had all old insulation removed and then 400mm thick of new Rockwool loft insulation installed, to vastly improve the thermal performance of the property.

The project was then signed off as fully legally compliant with building regulations under the “NFRCCPS” National Federation of Roofing Contractors Competent Person Scheme. We are one of only two members in the York area who can self certify all our own works. See link for more information: https://nfrccps.com/
