Shere Cottage was built in about 1905 and features decorative ceiling coving, ornate stained glass leadwork
in the windows and a tiled fireplace insert.
Also a lead worker is the best person to ask, not a roofer, as leadwork
is its own trade.
The house needs treatment for dry rot, roof repairs, new leadwork
and rainwater goods, masonry and brickwork repairs and re-pointing, joinery and structural repairs.
The CBC Stone team deliver not only stonework packages but are also developing their expertise by delivering main contracts incorporating other trades including roof repair, leadwork
and even interior fit-out.
Roofs - Check the roof of your house (and garage) from the outside with a pair of binoculars to check for slipped or broken tiles, or cracks in the leadwork
. It's also worth examining the roof from inside as a double check for water penetration.
The Grade II listed Emmanuel Church, in Saltburn, requires urgent work to its tower leadwork

The scheme, aimed mainly at those aged 16 to 19 but open to all, offers training in stonemasonry, carpentry, joinery, leadwork

of the south front and library roofs (the latter date from 1800).
