The original lead gullies were installed in steps and had split due to lack of expansion joints. The new gully was installed with neoprene expansion joints to allow movement and longevity.





This detailed cedar shingle work presented a once in a lifetme opportunity.  As well as being one of the few cedar roofs in the north of England, the swept valley detail made it a very rare example.  This detail with each shingle shaped, required a high level of slating skills to make weatherproof.  The works were carried out for Pickles Bros of Leeds.

This refurbishment involved replacement of parapet gullys and a bay roof which were all split.  With no steps in the majority of the timber gully construction, neoprene expansion joints had to be welded to the code 6 lead sections.  The lead bay was also covered in code 6 lead with a timber roll installed to provide central expansion joining.

This refurbishment involved replacement of a central box gully which had split due to installation in one piece.  The replacement was fitted in code 6 lead with a neoprene expansion joint welded centrally to cope with movement.  The four valleys were also replaced in code 5 lead sections because previous valleys were split due to incorrect fitting.

This re-roofing of an old chapel was carried out using Cupa Spanish slate.  These were laid with mitred hip details on the chancel roof.  The work was carried out for Pickles Bros of Leeds
