Deterioration of this historic church roof meant that re roofing was urgently required. This however posed some problems, particularly as the cladding structure covered all of the current lead edge galvanised pre-painted flashings, and to remove these would have meant significant additional costs.

Roofing Industries solved the problem by manufacturing and supplying Corrugate manufactured as 0.55BMT in double sided "Pioneer Red". Due to the current flashing materials remaining in very good condition a Colorcote® GR8 series pre-paint system over a galvanised substrate which removed any dissimilar metal concerns.

A colour-matched wide ridging with lead edge was manufactured and supplied by Roofing Industries (Central Ltd)
