Heritage Re-roofing with modern insulation

CASE STUDY: Heritage Re-roofing with modern insulation

Location: Littleborough, Greater Manchester

This terraced property we recently worked on in Littleborough has historical roots and is currently a Grade 2 listed building. The roof was in a pretty poor condition and had very little insulation.  Any work carried out had to be sympathetic and in keeping with its listed heritage. Our Eco-roof insulated roofing system was the perfect choice for such a heritage re-roofing project.

Work done included re-roofing with existing solar panels. Extremely happy with this company and would highly recommend. Very responsive to all my questions before the works and they are very knowledgeable about their profession. I was very pleased to find them as it is very difficult to find roofers with solar experience. All work completed to high standard and the guys on the job were very courteous/polite/tidy/punctual. Excellent communication through out and overall a very positive experience. Thank you to all the team for their hard work and professionalism.

Green and Heritage did the prep work necessary for installing solar panels on our roof. Great to deal with. Very good communication and very professional. Liaison with the electrical company fitting the panels was spot on and even cleaned the windows on completion. Recommended.

Excellent company. Well managed. The team are very polite and extremely hard working. They even sent a window cleaner around afterward to clean the windows after the roof was done who also wiped the doors and ledges. Highly recommend!

A very professional, polite and quality company from a detailed quotation to completion. Our project was a full re-roof with energy efficient elements. Site was kept secure and tidy at all times. The team kept us updated on progress throughout. They even sent a window cleaner after the job was completed. I would 100% recommend this company to anyone. I am happy for them to share photographs of the completed work. David & Michele Liversedge West Yorkshire
