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.

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

I looked for a professional company to repair my stone roof which had 2 serious leaks causing internal damage. I expected it to be a tricky job due to poorly installed insulation 20 years ago which was sprayed directly onto the stone. What a relief to hear Chris say that he had seen this before and knew how to deal with it. Kieran and Joe who undertook the work were simply outstanding. I highly commend them for their craftsmanship and their work ethic. In the roasting heatwave, they worked relentlessly (more than 10 hours per day). Cheerful young men who were a pleasure to have around. They kept me informed and updated every step of the way and were willing to answer every question I had. They found the source of both leaks and repaired the damage, restoring my roof to better than it was before. They cleaned up after themselves and ensured that everything was right before they left. I highly recommend this company!

What a relief to have found this company. Truly, a good professional team. Talented and responsive to any questions I had. I had Adam and his colleague take care of my re-roof. What a trooper he is. On time every single day. Never once bothered me. Just cracked on and did an excellent job that has got my neighbours admiring his work. It is an expensive job and you may be tempted by a cheaper quote but there is truth in "getting what you pay for". I am so thankful I decided to choose Green and Heritage for my project. I really do recommend you at the very least get a quote from them.

I had a full bath stone slate roof turn and repair plus a thermal blanket installed as my bedroom was open up to the eves. This really warmed up my bedroom and the roof problems I had been having stopped immediately. The lads who did the jib were brilliant and the were finished within 2 days. This included taking down the scaffolding and organising the skips to be picked up. I was really impressed and I recommend this company to all my friends. I would definitely use them again

The project was to remove and renew the weather membrane and replace the stone tiles to my roof. No easy task as the property is over 400 hundred years old. The company gave me the time to explain the stages throughout the project and it was dealt with in a very professional manner throughout. Chris attended site many times to explain the process and make sure we were happy. We had restricted access to the rear and this again proved no problem for Chris and his team. I had looked for a suitable contractor for a long time, so long in fact it took me two years to find Green & Heritage who gave me the faith that I was happy to proceed. The roofing team of Adam & Kieron were courteous and professional throughout. They are a credit to the company I can’t rate them highly enough. Thank you Adrian & Babz

We chose Green & Heritage Roofing because of a previous experience of theIr work on our property few years ago. This time it was dry rot and we had no hesitation in who we chose to do the repair. All the workmen were courteous, efficient and put us, the customer , first. There was the minimum of mess and a job well done. Communications during the work were absolutely excellent.

Chris and the team at Green and Heritage Roofing relaid our very old stone flagged roof and at the same time installed solar PV panels. I couldn't be more pleased with the service - the work was completed on time to a very high standard, all the roofers were exceptionally friendly and helpful and Chris kept us up to date on each stage of the project - highly recommended!

Really appreciated the work carried out by Green & Heritage. Shane and Kieran were always pleasant and courteous throughout. The installation was carried out with a high degree of care and professionalism and we are super pleased with the end result. Great design work from Chris H has meant that we actually now have a brighter yet warmer room that we use all year round. Would highly recommend.
