This property was re-roofed in hand made clays, with two different colours mixed together to portrait a two-toned effect. Notice we raked out the existing lime mortar on the chimney stack as it wasn’t aesthetically pleasing. We then re-pointed using natural lime and we also used natural lime to re-bed all the ridges and verges. This was to keep the colour consistent throughout the entire roof. Advantages of using lime mortar is that it gives the added benefit of lasting the entire lifetime of the roof, which is potentially 100 years.
