Roofing Heritage Specialists Complete Luxury Development - continued

In another challenging project, the company has completed a very large tiled roofs in the South of England.      With the fourth property, The Sables, Bracknell Roofing reused the sorted and graded clay peg tiles from the original roofs.

The team on site demonstrated its ability to tackle all aspects of roofing work by replacing the existing steel Dovecote on The Stables, which also required traditional lead work and flashings.

There was an additional requirement on some of the roofs for small lead top bays that, although hidden by a parapet wall from ground level, were visible from the first floor windows. This design detailing required a high degree of skill to ensure a long term, durable and aesthetic solution.

In another challenging project, the company has completed a very large tiled roofs in the South of England.

The roof of the 67 bedroom Abundant Grace residential nursing home defines the building’s whole appearance.

Incorporating hips, gables and verandas as well as two complex octagonal garden rooms, the roofs required a number of teams from Bracknell Roofing working on site.

The shallow, octagonal hip roof on the courtyard orangery is separate to the main building and required a high level of technical competence. This involved fitting the battens, trimming the tiles and completing the multiple hips, as well as the apex using modified ridges and a ridge cap mould.

An unusual feature of the development is a series of veranda roofs around the main building at first floor level, completed by the Bracknell Roofing. The veranda style is a feature found on some properties in the area and helps reduce the perceived height of the building, creating a less imposing structure.

A flat roof at the rear of the building, which houses the air conditioning units was recessed to avoid it detracting from overall sight lines. Having specialist flat roof teams, the roofing contractor offered the main contractor, Hilife Construction, guidance on the best method of creating this, which had to be robust enough to provide ongoing access for service and maintenance.

“The work carried out by Bracknell Roofing has been excellent – we are very pleased with our new roof,” said Patrick Colville Chairman SCNH Ltd. “We always thought that the octagonal hip roof on the orangery would be a challenge for any company, although Bracknell Roofing was able to complete it with ease.”

The client on this project was South Coast Nursing Homes. Abundant Grace provides EMI (Elderly Mentally Infirm) Residential & Nursing care.
