Our Roofers In Blackburn Have Been Working Hard On Houghton Tower!
In our prestigious history of being leading roofers in Blackburn and across Lancashire, we’ve catered to roofs of all shapes and sizes. One of the more prestigious jobs for our roofing company amongst all of our projects in Blackburn roofing, was for the de Houghton family of Houghton Tower which is located in east Lancashire.
We have maintained the roofs there for years, but recently they secured funding for some major work to be undertaken. So far, we have re-roofed the Banqueting Hall North face and are currently on with re-roofing the West Range & Well House. The roofs are covered with Yorkshire Grey slate which are all being stripped & re-laid with timberwork being replaced as necessary, new under felt and slate laths. The lead work is being inspected and replaced where needed, & we have also re-built a chimneystack.
Our Roofing Services In Colne & Throughout Lancashire Cater To Buildings Of All Sizes
As this is such a prestigious & treasured building, we work closely with the overseeing Architect & also with the de Hoghton family and the staff on-site. As you can imagine, with the building being as old as it is, there are numerous wonderful features of the Tower that need to be protected whilst we are doing this work. An example of this is a window in the Banqueting Hall. To ensure maximum protection, we had no choice than to completely cover it up to protect it. This is because the window itself is a listed feature!
For the entire team at Blackburn roofing company Absolute, it’s a huge honour to be the chosen roofers to work on such an iconic local manor house & we feel very proud that our work will be on show to all those that visit Hoghton Tower for many years to come. Although we can’t promise to transform your home into a tall, prestigious tower, we can guarantee your roof is in tip-top condition all year round thanks to our varying roofing services.
