Client: KAT Developments, Hayle, Cornwall.
Site Address: The Warren, St. Ives, Cornwall TR26 2EA.
Background to the Job
The problem involved slate slippage, lime mortar failure and inadequate chimney lead detail. This project was carried out for KAT Developments, a construction company based in Hayle and one of our regular clients.
We visited the site with KAT, assessed what work was required and took the necessary measurements. Following KAT’s acceptance of our quotation – which included detailed information and photographs – we worked closely with them in all areas of the project. All timescales, including scaffold erection, were arranged in accordance with the company’s schedule.
Talking to Our Clients
KAT Developments was kept updated periodically throughout the re-roofing work. On completion, another detailed email was sent. This included a complete summary of the work undertaken, pictures taken during the job and an itemised invoice.
A ‘before’ picture. This roof was subject to slate slippage and lime mortar failure. There was inadequate lead detail to the chimney stack, which caused water ingress.
First the old roof coverings were removed, then new breathable felt and treated timber were installed. 400mm x 200mm Spanish natural slate was installed using a copper nail fixing.
The roof was finished using a terracotta concrete ridge tile to match the remainder of the property.
This job also required vertical hung leading, which was applied to a lower roof section. The same slate and fixings were used with the addition of a code three 240mm lead soaker, and a 150mm lead cover flashing at the apex course.
A Satisfied Customer
KAT Developments was extremely pleased with both the high quality of the work and the way we communicated with them throughout the project.
KAT Developments has worked with Adam and his team at Summit since they were formed, and now rely almost exclusively on them for all our roofing works.
We have always found them to be knowledgeable, trustworthy and efficient, whether it be a small repair or a major re-roof. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone requiring any work associated with roofing.
