A Roof Refurbishment in Melton Constable

In the first half of the 20th Century, Melton Constable was a bustling place. The pretty village stood at the confluence of two railway lines that crossed Norfolk and goods and passenger trains rattled in from the Midlands. Since the closure of those railways in the mid-1960s, the village has become a haven for those seeking a peaceful life in the quiet countryside.

Towards the end of last summer, we undertook a major roof refurbishment on a property in Melton Constable. We stripped the roof of the existing roof tiles and fitted a new breather membrane and graded tile battens. We added a new lead valley, with stepped lead flashing to the gable and lead work on the chimney. Finally, we fitted new tiles and a ridge to the roof.

Here are two more pictures of the finished article! (Let’s hope next summer has a few days as glorious as the one when these were taken!)
