42 Billington Road

Project brief

We were requested to attend the 42 Billington Road due to leaks to the roof.Upon our investigation, we found that there was a lack of ventilation in the loft space so this had caused the existing timber decking to sweat and to rot away.

The challenges in the design

Due to the extent of the works a temporary roof was required to avoid any water ingress during the works and to assist in completing the work on time.
One side of the roof was a manmade slate which we replaced and ventilated at the fascia, with a vented dry ridge system where the slate roof met the lead roof.
Not only did the roof look aesthetically pleasing, it solved the issue of lack of ventilation which caused the roof to sweat and to rot.
