This National Trust farm cottage is situated on the historic Stourhead Estate in Stourton, Wiltshire. Search Farmhouse, formerly a B&B has recently been completely refurbished internally with only exterior decoration outstanding before new tenants occupy the building.
Chosen for its robust nature, 20 year guarantee and ability to mimic the appearance of a lead sheet roof, Dryseal was installed at the National Trust’s request by Rowsell Roofing of Yeovil, an approved Dryseal contractor, in March 2013.
The refurbishment involved the removal of a dilapidated fibre cement sheet roof from the conservatory, the decayed decking and felt roof over the Utility area, with re-instatement using Dryseal fitted over plywood. The Dryseal was finished in dark grey with a UV protective top coat and completed with decorative roll trims to give a lead effect and lead-like appearance.
Dryseal Manager Andy Fell said “Nick and Nathan of Rowsell Roofing completed a first class job with exemplary attention to detail and a pride in their work that is a joy to see. The feedback from the client echoes this”.
Hambleside Danelaw is delighted to be a part of another National Trust project in Buckinghamshire. Marlow Place, a 17th century Georgian property is in need of new flat roof areas and guttering and it has been requested that Dryseal replace the lead sheeting due to its proven reputation as a sensible alternative to lead.
