Roofing Cambridge – Slating

Project Facts

Project Detail



Through a recommendation, Cambridge Roofers were contacted to undertake roofing works on Isaacson road. The property originally had Stonewold Mark II concrete interlocking tiles. The client was interested in changing the appearance of the roof to slates. At a pitch of 18 degrees, the roof could not accommodate most slates so a large composite slate was recommended. The client also refurbished the roofline with anthracite grey fascias, soffits and guttering.
