St Mary and St Michael’s, Garstang

Roofing, lead work and masonry were required to carryout the full re-roofing of St Mary and St Michael’s Church. Heritage Conservation Restoration Ltd carried out the external re-roofing of all the roof slopes to the Nave and Aisle roofs of the Church.

The first stage of the project required us to fully strip the roof, carefully setting aside the Burlington blue slates for reuse, followed by the removal of the felting to reveal the bare timber roof structure.

Once the roof was fully stripped, our team of joiners formed a new central valley to the roof, ahead of the installation of a new terne coated stainless steel gutter. The stone trough outer gutters were lined in fibreglass and all the stone copings were taken off and re-bedded to allow for a new lead DPM (Damp Proof Membrane) and secret gutters to be installed.

Following the completion of the joinery and gutter works, a new TLX gold roof membrane was then laid prior to the reinstatement of the original roof slates in diminishing course where possible. We sourced new, reclaimed Burlington blue slates to make up the shortfall of damaged slates to maintain the uniform look of the roof.

The project was part funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the contract had a strict deadline to be finished before the Christmas period, which was successfully achieved. The client was delighted with our management of the project and as a result, asked us to carry out the re-roofing works of the Presbytery as an addition to the contract.

The works were carried out without the use of a temporary roof and Heritage successfully ensured the building remained watertight throughout the duration of the contract. The Church remained open during the works and there was no disruption to the adjacent school throughout the project due to the careful planning/programming of deliveries and phasing of works.

Client: Parish St Mary and St Michael’s, Diocese of Lancaster.

Architect: Lee Podmore (Bernard Taylor Partnership)

Period: 24 weeks

Value: £166,000
