The stone slate roofs were completely stripped back to the rafters.












Insulation was then added  in the form of TLX Gold breathableStone slating

membrane, the roof was then treated with preservative for

the prevention of woodworm before being re-laid on treated baton.

Cotswold stone slates were then re-laid.

New cast-iron guttering was fitted replacing the damaged

original guttering.

We also fitted a new slate guard to protect pedestrians below.


Finally timber repairs were carried out to Sash window heads

on the middle floor to allow new lead-work to be installed.Burford listed building restoration


























"We had the unfortunate happening - Storm damage - at the front part of our roof on the High Street in Burford. We employed Pether’s, the local listed buildings restoration specialist to repair the damaged part of the roof. The company arranged the enormous scaffolding that was needed to get to the roof, they worked very cleanly and professionally, documented all the damaged parts with detailed photographs and the result is marvelous. A very satisfactory experience indeed. Many thanks to Pether’s of Burford."
