The Old Vicarage is a detached residential property.
The homeowner had employed a local joinery company to build a single-storey extension adjoining the main property.
Ashbridge Roofing was contracted to install the roof onto the extension, consisting of a 90m² flat roof and 78m² Applied products pitched roof.
From start to completion, the project took just four weeks.
The Old Vicarage is located in a conservation area. This meant that the roof had to be constructed from lead.
The homeowner specifically wanted a glass roof to help light the extension. However, this had to be hidden within the lead roof.
The team had to work closely to an architect’s detailed specification.
We installed a flat roof over the kitchen and dining area using a SOPREMA single ply roofing membrane.
A hipped lead roof was installed over the living area and a pitched roof to an outbuilding, using reclaimed slates.
Our specialist roofer worked on the lead roof, behind which we installed two modern glazed roof lines – a compromise which met the requirements of the homeowner whilst meeting planning and conservation regulations.
