This was a roofing and chimney removal undertake in early 2015 by J.C. Mitchell Builders Ltd. The original roof was estimated to be 75 years old and was showing signs of wear. The chimney was no longer in use and it was decided to remove it while the roof was being replaced.

Stripping the existing tiles and re-felting and battening the roof was undertaken  in windy but fortunately dry conditions. The chimney was removed at this stage and the new slating began.

With the new slates in place the ridge and hip capping slates are added.

The completed new roof now completely water tight and and ready for another 75 years of Cornish weather.
