Blackdown Hall, which had been converted into luxury apartments, was engulfed by flames, destroying over half the roof. The fire affected the attic and five first-floor flats while the remainder of the building suffered as a result of smoke damage.
As part of the restoration project, Coventry-based Pro-Roof had to completely remove the remains of the existing roof and rebuild it using materials sympathetic to the original and in keeping with the other buildings within the estate grounds.
The refurbishment of Blackdown Hall was completed in Autumn 2015. The building has been restored to its former glory and now comprises nine luxury apartments.
Speaking about the project, Darren Dodd, Sales Manager, said: “I visited the site to gather samples of the original tiles to ensure they matched the tile that I thought would best work as a replacement, the Rosemary Clay Craftsman in Albury.
“This tile, in this particular colour, was in keeping with the surrounding roofs and the client was happy with the match. The Rosemary Clay Craftsman is handcrafted to provide authentic natural textures and a heritage, weathered look but with all the qualities and strength of a brand new tile.”
A roof with random textured surfaces, irregular front edge distortion and varying hanging lengths combine to give Rosemary Clay Craftsman the look of traditional handmade clay tiles
A system designed for mono or duo pitched roofs, using Rosemary Clay Craftsman tiles that is ideal for any new or refurbishment situation. The Rosemary Clay Craftsman tile provides a practical, durable and cost effective roofing solution for years to come.
