The Old Vicarage, Searby

BACKGROUND

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.

CHALLENGE

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.

SOLUTIONS

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.
