The conservation area of The Avenues in Hull means that any work carried out has to be in keeping with its surroundings. Our clients on this project were two neighbours who decided to replace their existing roof coverings, but re-using the original slates to the front elevations and using new Spanish slates to the rear. The existing lead work was replaced and new ridge tiles were mechanically fixed with a profile dry ridge system, ensuring the property was maintenance free but still appeared traditional. A lead bay was replaced to the front of one of the dwellings with a new lead covering.
