The first day of fitting eight copper barrel dormers in Hele, Taunton.
The first piece of eight curved copper dormer tops for a project near Taunton.
At St Martin’s Church, North Perrott, thieves have visited this church on ten occasions and systematically removed all the lead roofing on the North and South Transept, Organ Chamber, Turret and the Nave.
To stop this happening again, the PCC decided to fit terne-coated stainless steel standing seam roofing.
The terne-coated stainless steel is a very tough product with a very long lifespan of 100 years plus. It is very hard to remove and has a very low recycling cost and therefore not worth stealing.
The “terne” coating is a mixture of zinc and tin, and will tone down over a couple of years and take on the appearance of lead or zinc.
Two lead and one zinc/lead roofs completed!
Main roofs code 8 sand cast hollow core rolls with code 9 sand cast gutter linings with zinc roof to the porch.
All timber in the gutters were relined to correct falls and step heights hence code 9 gutters. Also some stone masonry to the porch parapets.
A new barrel roof based on an old Nissan hut for a new home is finished at Drayton, Somerset.
VM Zinc Quartz plus pre-weathered zinc fitted to a warm roof system. A 10 year manufactures material guarantee can be offered on such roofs as we are one of VM Zincs registered installers.
