Slating is considered to be the most skillful of the roofing crafts. At Wensley Roofing we have many teams of qualified slaters. Our slating services include: new Welsh slating, new Spanish slating, Green Westmorland slating, Strip & recover work and Heritage and conservation work (see also our heritage division Matthew Charlton Slaters).
Tiling accounts for a very significant proportion of our work. We have regular contracts with most of the major builders of homes in the region. We supply and fix roof tiles from various manufacturers including: Decra, Forticrete, Marley Eternit, Russell, Redland and Sandtoft. We are experienced at working to the PPS by Design specifications using Decra steel tiles.
We have invested heavily in training in recent years to ensure that key members of our skilled workforce can provide high quality metal flooring and cladding. We provide a complete range of leadwork services for heritage sites such as Durham and Newcastle Cathedrals, and also for major house builders, architects and individual owners.
Keeping water permanently out of flat surfaces is a test that sorts out skilful roofers from careless chancers. At Wensley Roofing we offer a range of solutions that really last. Within flat roofing we do: Single ply, Felting and also Liquid roofing. With our liquid roofing we focus on: Polyroof glassfibre system, Sealoflex waterproofing systems suitable for a wide range of surfaces and Kemper system – solvent-free with strong environmental advantages.
We are working with the National Federation of Roofing Contractors to promote and facilitate the use of photo voltaics (PV), solar thermal, safety features and other active roof systems. We can install a range of active roofing systems on pitched and flat roofs so that the systems are integrated into the main roofing materials. We are communicating with designers and suppliers, and developing specialist training programmes, to ensure that we become the North East’s most Active Roofers.
