Ever wondered how long it takes to strip a stone tiled roof?.... .
The first job of any major renovation is to control the water, that meant removing and relaying the whole Cotswold Stone Roof over a breathable membrane. .
This was done in the Spring and being as the rest of the house was going to be renovated throughout we took the gamble of not having a scaffold over-roof during the work. By only doing a section at a time it minimised exposure to the elements but saved huge costs in scaffolding. .
This replacement should last 50+ years and 80% of the removed stone was able to be re-used minimising costs. .
A couple of pictures from this morning as the sun came up. Still a bit of a building site but its tidy and the barn is looking really great now that it has been repointed.
It’s all happening this week as the roof will be finished, the windows are going in, the guttering is going up and the roof insulation is being finished inside.
Then this weekend the scaffolding will be coming down, I can’t wait to see it again with no scaffolding!
