Roofing Materials

Old growth timbers come from structures such as barns, homes and factories that have stood for well over a hundred years. These buildings have become no longer usable in their present condition and instead of demolishing them to take to a landfill, we carefully disassemble them and remill the lumber into usable building products such as flooring, wall paneling etc. By using reclaimed wood that was harvested over a hundred years ago, we are lessening the damage to valuable ecosystems and reducing the destructive over harvesting of the new wood plantations and forests. 

Peach Bottom Slate

Hand Hewn Beams were fallen logs, hewn into shape using a broad axe known in its time as an 'adze', which lends to the term of hand hewn sometimes being referred to as 'hand adzed'. Originally, shaping a log into a beam with an axe was the only method.

Clay

Clay concrete roof tiles and good quality natural slates can have an incredibly long lifespan. So long, in fact, that the tiles or slates will outlast the other components of the average pitched roof. Although manufacturers of roof tiles limit their guarantees to commercially sensible periods, typical clay could last well in excess of 100 years. This means that during a demolition or a re-roof, the slates and roof tiles can be salvaged and re-used, either on the same property or, more commonly on another project.
