Churston Builders, the Torbay Builder, replaced this tired slate roof in Newton Abbot in June 2013.
Previous attempts to seal the roof have been made with proprietary coatings which had long since failed. The only way forward was to replace the tiling and ridges and renew the valley linings. Where possible the original ridge tiles and finials were retained to maintain the buildings character. The valleys were reconstructed with zinc trays for longevity. The roof had various pitches and gables and required complex scaffold and access means to maintain safety.
