Re-roofing works at the Ward Aldam Estate, Rotherham

John Hill Associates Ltd were appointed to detail and oversee the re-roofing of a range of listed buildings on the estate which entailed the complete strip off of the roof finishes including lead work, attending to areas of the roof structure that had deteriorated over many years. This also included the replacement of "Dragon Ties" to the roof hips. In traditional roof construction of old a dragon tie was often incorporated beneath the hip rafter, particularly where they were carrying purlins, as this allowed the hip rafter to carry a much heavier load.
