Replacement Lead Gulley

Replacement Lead Gulley

As the building we going to work on was Grade 2 listed bulding, we had to liaise with the the local conservation officer.

Standard procedure for our guys. Once on the roof we had to strip the previous lead gulley and we soon realised where the leaks had been taking place.

Once everything had been stripped, the team proceeded to replace the lead gulley. Once it was all in place they began shaping the lead using lead beaters to mould the lead into it’s correct place with the appropriate tools. Lead Beaters, Lead snips, years of skills and plenty of elbow grease is what is required here.

A combination of a highly skilled roofer and a some Patination oil, this is the end product!

Replacement Roof Hip

Replacement Hip

Fairly straight forward project. Although it certainly takes a keen eye to maintain the straight line the way Synergy Roofing like our hip (and ridgelines) to be laid. With the previous ridges being replaced with new ridges, the team had to make sure they were laid perfectly, and perfectly is exactly how they were laid. With yet again, another happy customer, its fair to say the team are on a roll at the moment. absolutely fantastic work from the lads.

Summer house Mould Problems solved

This job involved two summer houses that hadn’t been joined properly. Fortunately Synergy Roofing were at hand!

As you can see the problems are evident. With water and moisture getting between the gap, this was creating an endless amount of damp and consequently mould for the customer. It was clear that we needed to solve this issue by covering it further. so we sent our guys in to get straight on with it.

Slate Reroof

Slate Tile Reroof

Another slate reroof, this time around out in the village of Nassington. As per with any reroof, the first step is to always remove the old slates first. then, we take care of the old batten and old felt. The next step is to nail down the new felt and batten – always using BS5534 breathable membrane and treated batten – once this is done, the slates are ready to be laid. As you can see below, good prep work enables the tiles to be put in with out any hiccups.

Did you know ?

Battening that has the correct specifications for BS5534 has BS5534 printed on it (and usually is dyed red) if you are using a roofer who uses batten that doesn’t have BS5534 printed on it, they are cutting corners on your project !!

All throughout jobs, we like to encourage the customers to have a look at that work, as it progresses, and at every opportunity this particular customer give us positive feedback. Also worth noting, that due to this job being a reroof (also called a roof refurbishment), we were sure to adhere to the BS5534 standards. Also, as more than 50% of the roof covering was being replaced we are legally required to apply for a compliance certificate from the Local Authority Building Inspector. As a homeowner you can be fined £5000 for not getting one ! Similar to the compliance certificates for new electrical works, this ensures the completed roofing works match the required standards and hopefully puts cowboy roofers out of business !

With the roof being covered in brand new slates, its safe to say the customer was over the moon with their new roof. And we can’t blame him, looking at these pictures!

Replacement Batten

Replacement Batten

We received a call from a lovely lady out in March. she was a bit concerned as she had a leak from the roof that was causing damp throughout the bathroom and garage. Once the guys got there, they stripped the roof and they soon realised that the issue was the poor grade felt that was previously used.

We stripped the tiles, old batten, and the old felt. We then nailed in some new felt and battens and put back the original tiles. we showed the customer the issue, then we showed the lovely lady how we would then resolve this. The lady was very appreciative of this and has since not had any issues with her roof!

Fibreglass roof

Fibreglass roof

This next job we go to a redeveloping pub in Whittlesey, the Railway. The customer wanted a the entirety of the attached ground floor floor fibreglassed. Relatively straight forward, after the prep work we were left with rolling out fibreglass then applying the roof resin followed by painting the while roof with the topcoat to finish the job.

Another job with “quality” written all all over it. Well done team. Just a shame the pub had no beer in stock so we could enjoy the weather and admire our handywork !
