Tiling & Slating
Ridgeway Roofing & Building Ltd are specialist roofing contractors from
Shepparton, Middlesex. We provide an expert range of roofing services to our clients
including roof tiling,roof slating, roof repairs and roof maintenance.
We have significant experience of working with the following roof coverings:
Cotswold stone slates, Collyweston stone slates, Hamstone slates, Purbeck stone
slates, clay and concrete plain tiles, Welsh slate, Spanish slate, Delabole slate,
Westmorland slate, Burlington slate, man-made slates, Cedar and Oak shingles,
Clay Pantiles, Clay Double Roman tiles and Lead.
All of our master craftsmen have served a formal apprenticeship in roof slating
and tiling. Once this three year training has been completed, they continue
their on-site development working under an experienced master craftsman
for several years
During this period they will attend two residential lead working courses run
by the Lead Sheet Association to develop these skills.
We prefer our master craftsmen to take ownership of the roof that they are working on and that
can only be achieved if they have carried out all of the work – carpentry, roofing and lead work.
This also avoids any overlap of different trades work which can often cause potential weak areas
on the roof.
Once these first six years of their training have been completed they will
often choose a special roof covering, for example stone slate roofing,
and we can then continue their development skill set.
We have a very good record of long-term employees so that we can
establish not only excellent site practices but also decent site behavior –
something that is very important for our clients.
This excellence on site is backed up by a professionally operated company with in-house Health & Safety specialists to ensure that your project runs without a hitch. The earlier we are able to start the planning and preparation means the smoother the project can run. So please feel free to contact us to discuss any aspect of your potential project.
