There is nothing like being caught out by the snow….
Just as we thought we saw the end of the winter weather, the March snow prevented us from continuing with this roof for a few weeks. The Tyvek breather membrane and J B Red battens kept the roof dry and free from snow entering the roof space until the temperature picked up and play was resumed! Although Colt Houses added a dormer window over the kitchen in 2000, This 1950 steep pitch house has seen little changes over the years, now complete with a new cedar wood shingle roof and an order for replacement windows lined up for the 2019. This should keep the new occupiers warm and cosy for many years to come.
On another note, Colt Houses have chosen this roof as our entry into the Roofing Contractor of the Year Award, for the cedar wood shingle category. Fingers crossed!!
