Re-Roofing of Traditional Yorkshire Stone

Great progress on time and budget despite the cold weather on the banks of the Derwent Reservoir. This job entails the stripping off of existing Yorkshire stone, setting aside for re-use. renewing felt and battens and re-fixing set aside stone adding additional shortfall to match existing.

This type of works involves a lot of patience and skill to sort through ever individual piece of traditional Yorkshire stone slabs to find the right piece to matched the width and thickness of the stone already laid. If this is not done correctly it is very visible from down below you will see gaps of uneven stone. 14-11-2017 due to complete 24-11-2017

As you can see in the picture above the stone is showing the the weathering of existing overlap this can be power washed prior to being re-fitted or else this stone will soon weather and won’t be visible.

There is no reason once this type of Yorkshire stone roof has been fitted that the life expectancy will reach 80-100 years with little maintenance. The main work required would be the main sand and cement work i.e the repointing of Ridge tiles and verge detail.
