CHURCH ROOF REPAIRS,
ST JOHN’S 
YSBYTY CYNFYN
1992

BRIEF
To draw up a repair scheme including new cast iron rainwater goods, and put it out to tender, organize the contract and supervise the work on site. Replacement material and repair to be kept to a reasonable minimum.
Working on churches can take us into some wonderful places. At the back of this church is the Rheiddol Gorge which is in fact a temperate rainforest, full of ferns and lichens.

Rod Emberton is highly experienced in dealing with historic buildings and is on the approved list of architects to work on churches in the Diocese of Chester.

He specified and supervised this little roof repair project in the mountains of Mid-Wales 25 years ago and we understand that it remains sound and weathertight. A carefully supervised and fixed slate roof like this should still have decades to go before re-scaffolding and re-slating will be necessary.

ASPECTS
  • Conservation of Historic     Buildings.
  • Competitive Tendering.
  • Site Inspections and Instructions.
  • Interim Valuations & Final Account.
Health and Safety note: these chaps were about to be reminded to put their safety hats on!
