The Moran Roofing team are always pleased to be working in our hometown, of Farnham, have a look at some of our current jobs.
The Moran Roofing team are flying high after winning The Best of Farnham award for the second year running.
Moran Roofing was founded in 1983 because I wanted to continue the trade introduced to me by my grandfather. He taught me how to provide highly experienced and reliable roofing contractors. Over the years Moran Roofing has built up a long list of happy and satisfied customers, who frequently recommend our service to others.
We are proud to work for Guildford Borough Council to maintain the Ancient Barns roofs. The Barns were first constructed in 1388 and would have been used for storing crops and harvesting.
Our investigations showed several reasons for the clients continued problems. The Chimney had recently been re-built, however the new bricks were unsuitable for the level of exposure. The bricks which had been used were light weight and porous.
Two of our lead work and slating specialists, Sam Jordan and Andy Gamblen, undertook this project.As part of our clients brief the slates had to be the same size, colour and thickness. This required careful material sourcing.
We have under taken many lead works projects and work with and can certify LedLok anti lead theft systems.
We stripped the roof of all the old tiles, felt and batten, treating all rafters and joists to prevent woodworm and dry rot. We then replaced with new batten, breathable membrane felt and new Rosemary clay tiles.
Moran Roofing has completed the re-roofing to this Grade 2 listed building. Applying individually cut hand made clay tiles. These were bedded in lime mortar bonnet hips, lead applied to the roof dormers and cheeks (leaded reverse Dormer can also be seen to the left).
Undertaking all the necessary refurbishments whilst still maintaining the aesthetic integrity of a building of this age.
