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.
