Buildings of special interest or historical significance warrant every effort to preserve them. Whether you have a heritage property that requires careful roofing restoration, lead or slate work, or you own a prestigious property where only the best quality building work and heritage renovations will do, you can trust Ploughcroft every step of the way.
Our specialist roofing restoration and lead work skills have helped to recondition many prestigious properties, from domestic dwellings through to churches and schools and even Grade I, Grade II and Grade II* listed buildings.
Having worked on projects funded by English Heritage and the National Trust we set ourselves apart from many contractors with our understanding and guiding principles for this type of work. But our Heritage Roofing services aren’t just limited to listed and protect buildings. Any property or structure of special interest or prestige (even cinemas and pubs!) requires unique roofing care, as do ordinary buildings located in conservation areas.
The heritage roofing projects that we undertake here at Ploughcroft span from commercial jobs through to restoring domestic properties. Examples include the former High Fernley Hall, now a Grade II building but also a family home located in a rural location between Halifax and Wyke, near Bradford.
All our craftsmen are knowledgeable and understand the right approach to take to competently restore heritage, prestigious and listed buildings. We are Heritage Certified and fully qualified in Understanding Repair and Maintenance of Traditional pre-1919 Buildings.
We are immensely proud to have worked on projects such as the restoration of The Halifax Piece Hall, Halifax Borough Market, St Paul’s Church, Manningham, St Michaels College, Leeds and Kirklees Hall as well as many others.
If you own a listed or heritage building you will be well aware of the focus and care needed to restore a roof in order to protect the building itself, but also the necessity to keep the roof as close to the original in structure and appearance. Roofing restoration plays an essential part in large-scale heritage renovations.
Ploughcroft’s time-served craftsmen are accustomed to working on all manner of pitched roof projects, including Grade I & Grade II listed buildings, churches, schools through to re-roofing and replacing the roofs of other buildings of historical significance such as old theatres.
All our re-roofing work is carried out to BS5534 British Roofing Standards and reduces your maintenance costs and energy costs in the long term, coming with a 10-year insurance backed guarantee to boot!
Roof Windows and Conservation Lights
As heritage roofing specialists, we also have experience in installing conservation style windows and roof lights and will work with local conservationists, if required, to ensure that the installation is sympathetic in appearance and blends seamlessly into the roof.
Roof windows open up a room and allow healthy natural light to filter into the room within boosting your mood and the room’s ambience! We are certified VELUX installers so you can rest assured that your roof windows and skylights are in the safest of hands with us.
Our accreditation with VELUX also enabled us to fit conservation windows including sash windows and conservation style VELUX windows with solar blinds into the vaulted ceiling at a home in Leeds enabling extra light to shine through. The occupants can now enjoy the stunning views their property has to offer.
