The UK is known for its historic buildings including town houses, mills, farmhouses, country house, stately homes and churches. They are all part of the UKs very special heritage and when it comes to their repair and renovation they demand extra special workmanship and attention to detail.
Heritage and conservation roofing can be defined as roof works carried out with traditional materials and workmanship to buildings which have an historic value. This is as opposed to modern materials and workmanship used with current building practices. Specialist contractors NERC are recognised as qualified Master Roofers and Crafter Roofers which has earned us a place on their National Heritage Register.
The National Heritage Roofing Register is part of an initiative to promote understanding and training in heritage roofing, giving assurance to the owners of heritage buildings that a company is qualified to carry out the work to a high standard. The NERC team hold NVQ Gold Standard qualifications in conservation and heritage roofing techniques.
We provide all types of heritage roof repair and restoration work and our specialist team come fully equipped to work on all types of English Heritage properties from houses to commercial buildings.
