About this event

This course covers the history of traditional slate and stone roofing but mainly concentrates on their conservation and repair.

The starting point is an understanding of how roofs work and the different materials used, including regional variations and methods of construction.  Modern codes of practice and standards are covered, along with practical demonstrations and hands-on work in making and preparing slates and mortar, and their application to roofs, including setting out, recording and the construction of both random and single-sized roofs.   The course will be supplemented by films and practical sessions on surveying old roofs, traditional detailing, writing specifications and finding sources of information.
