The population of England has been steadily rising for decades, increasing the need for quality housing. Whilst there are a number of new builds springing up, and there is more and more council accommodation, many people still live in, and love, their older houses; particularly in the centre of cities, towns, and villages.
Older buildings naturally need more work and repair, but it is worth it to keep the building looking as good as when it was first built all those years ago. This means that when any work is carried out then it is essential to use the methods and materials from the period your house was built in, from the foundation to the roof.
The roof is one of the most prominent parts of a period house, and making sure your roof is in keeping with the rest of the house isn’t as hard as you might think by using a roofing contractor with plenty of experience in heritage roofing. By using the same materials and methods of roofing, they can give you a seamless finish that gives the same look as when it was first made. Even if you only need a small repair, using the wrong materials will stand out and take away from the authenticity of your home.
Heritage roofing is an art and one that takes time and effort to learn. Go to a professional that can show examples of their work and you know that your home is in safe hands.
