Tiled extension roof at Abingdon Oxfordshire

This is the extension that came up through the garage roof that I did the GRP Flat Roof for located in Abingdon Oxfordshire. The images show the extension roof being felt, battened, tiled and with a straight lead chase flashing, with mortar work to verges and ridge tiles. The standard stepped leadwork flashing would have looked out-of-place so close to the roof angle so the builder and client asked for it to be straight and it worked.

The roof felt using high quality products from Marley, battens are pressure treated for long working life, in place ready to accept tiles at the correct gauge.
