Church Roof renovation

Churches are some of our country’s most iconic buildings and the roofs an intrinsic part of architecture spanning centuries.

Their age and vulnerability means when repairs and replacements are needed only the most specialised firms with skilled craftsmen are able to meet the complex challenges.

Shire Homes is proud of its sensitive and successful church roof work, which preserves these beautiful historic buildings for future generations to enjoy.
Working with church councils, diocesan representatives and architects we undertake every element of restoration projects, from public safety to specialist joinery, slating, lead and lime work.

As well as sourcing the best and most appropriate materials for these intricate commissions, we understand that our work has to fit in, and complement, magnificent ancient structures, often Grade 1 or 2 Listed.

“Churches represent some of our loveliest and most distinctive buildings,” said Shire Homes director and master joiner, Ryan Morris.

“We feel a great sense of responsibility when carrying out roof work on churches and important heritage buildings. Their preservation and protection are of paramount importance and we are proud to give them a new lease of life, hopefully lasting as long as the originals!”

 

Wherever we work and whatever we do, attention to detail is paramount.
We work closely with our customers, listening, advising and following instructions every step of the way to deliver the highest quality.

Client Feedback

A beautiful Victorian church situated on an exposed promontory above Ireleth, St. Peter’s enjoys views out over the Duddon Sands estuary and beyond to the Irish Sea. Its prominent position has its challenges, with the weather hitting the church from the west. The church has a distinctive tower that culminates in four stone gables and a slate covered spire with metal finial. The metal finial fell from the church spire in 2017. Much of the slate work was loose and the supporting stonework in poor condition, with water ingress. The tower previously had cement pointing, further exacerbating the problem. Paul Crosby, Crosby Granger Architects
