Mitered Slate Hips
Here’s a few pictures from a 2018 project on an industrial unit roof in Gloucestershire.
The product used was a textured cement fibre slate. A good alternative to natural slate, especially with the textured finish.
Other roofing materials used during this installation were a high quality roofing felt and a treated 25x50mm roofing batten.
The four hips of the roof are joint with a mitered effect in the cement fibre slate, creating an almost seem less join between all four faces of the roof. An alternative method of hip would be to use hip tiles made out of other materials such as clay or concrete.
The ridge was capped with a piece of code 5 lead, thick and durable.

Code 5 lead cap
Natural stone roofs are among the oldest roof coverings around and are typically used in the Cotswold’s. A stone roof can last for 100 years or more and look absolutely stunning. Traditionally the roof is tiled with diminishing courses with the largest tiles at the bottom of the roof and the smallest at the top. This is a barn that we are working on at Shipton just outside Cheltenham.
The nature of stripping a stone roof, sorting all the various different size tiles and reusing the sound tiles is always time consuming but the end results are rewarding.

Fibreglass fishpond in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
K. Sacklyn & Co. are a team of expert roofers working throughout Gloucestershire, so why have we got a photo of a fishpond on our blog?
Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) commonly referred to as Fibreglass is a high performance waterproofing system for all types of flat roofing, box gutters, valleys, balconies, walkways or anywhere that requires waterproofing, even fishponds.
It is formed in situ by reinforcing polyester resin with chopped strand matt using a peroxide based catalyst to harden it. Once cured it forms a joint free laminate that will last well in excess of twenty years. Just the kind of material you want a fishpond to be made from, long lasting and waterproof.
So the photo of the fishpond is one that we fibreglassed in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. The project was completed in 2 days by 2 of our expert roofers.
So if you need a fibreglass roof or even a fishpond give us a call on 01531 828407 or 01242 649694.
Multi-foil insulation provides thermal efficiency and is only 30mm thick!
It works both in summer and winter: Actis Triso Super 10. In winter, it retains heat within buildings. In summer, it reflects radiation preventing overheating of attic rooms. Certified as the equivalent of 210mm of mineral wool but is only 30mm!
Other benefits include: seals roof against wind and damp while retaining ventilation; it saves valuable living space; beams and rafters may be left exposed. It is more tricky to install as you have to double batten the roof, however you don’t have to deal with nasty fibreglass mineral wool, or cut celotex insulation between the rafters, which takes an age. Triso is a much faster option.
Above is a new build roof we did in Hartpury, Gloucestershire, that used tin foil type insulation.
