    The single storey roof section depicts natural slating with a lead ridge, which consists of lead sheet dressed around a wood cored roll. The combination of lead and slate presents a very traditional look along with proven durability.

    The roof and turret shown in this photograph has fibre cement roof coverings, the material is manufactured and is the most economical form of slating. An interesting detail is the close mitred hips with concealed lead flashings, also visible is a lead lined valley junction and a run of concrete hip tiles to the main roof. 
     

    roofingbristol4The bandstand on this photograph has a clay plain tile roof covering with lead covered  hip junctions.  Plain tile  hips can be constructed  using a variety of distinct materials and shapes, the lead covered roll is traditional  while the half round hip tile gives a softer look, bonnet hips and dry fixed purpose made hips give a very different look and if anything they look more  decorative  as well as being adequatly functional.

    This shot graphically shows the aesthetic quality of plain clay tile bonnet hips and the pre-formed 90 degree corner tiles which are fixed to the dormer, all of these tiles are mechanically fixed using alloy nails and as a result of the bonding quality of plain tiles, we have an exceptionally strong roof covering.

    These diagonal slates are not the most common of roof coverings but when fitted professionally they can look effective. Note: Valley Junction and Ridge details. These slates also come in a variety of colours to match adjacent roofing situations or abutments.
