Listed Building Roof Refurbishment

Roof refurbishment project of a listed building in West Hamstead

London Art Construction and Design recently completed a roof refurbishment project of a listed building in West Hamstead, London. Our team of experts carefully executed this project, preserving the historical character of the building while providing modern upgrades to the roof and exterior features. The result is a fully refurbished and weather-tight roof that will serve the building for years to come.


Our scope of works included;


  • Erection of scaffolding

  • Full covering of the existing roof to protect it from weather during the project

  • Protection of pathway and driveway stones and making good any disturbed surfaces

  • Removal of scaffolding upon completion

  • Careful removal and disposal of all existing roof tiles

  • Installation of Marley Edgmere dark grey roof tiles on breathable membrane with lead code 6, ventilation, and period-accurate ridge tiles

  • Upgrades to roof insulation with Rockwool Rainscreen Duo Slab

  • Replacing rotten timbers and making good the roof edges

  • Laying new plywood substrate and asphalt roof covering on flat roof

  • Replacing the coping and lead flashings on the roof edge

  • Repairing and refitting Victorian style gutter, cleaning and testing for leaks

  • Repairs and renovations to the main entrance door and front door porch, including sanding, filling, protecting, and sealing the woodwork

  • Upgrades to the seals and cords & pulleys of the external windows.


This project presented unique challenges, as it was a listed building and required meticulous attention to detail to preserve the historical integrity of the structure.


Our team of experienced professionals worked diligently to complete the project on time and within budget, utilizing the latest techniques and materials to ensure a high-quality outcome. The result is a beautifully refurbished roof that not only enhances the appearance of the building, but also provides a more functional and durable solution for the building's occupants.


We are proud to have played a part in preserving the historical significance of this iconic structure and are committed to delivering exceptional results for all of our clients.
