Aggregate Industries’ Building Products team has helped to restore the roof of a historic hall, in Rutland, to its former glory, after supplying 700m2 of its Bradstone Cotswold roofing tiles to the project. Located in the village of Langham, Ranksborough Hall is a large grand house that was built in 1893 for Lord Ranksborough, who was then equerry to Queen Victoria.
Aggregate Industries were brought on board by Rutland Roofing, appointed contractors on the job. The hall originally had Collyweston Stone Slate on the roof, which needed to be replaced, but the managers required a new product that would resemble a similar colour and effect. Aggregate Industries’ Bradstone Cotswold roofing tiles did just that.
In total, the project took around six months to complete as the roof was replaced in sections, with the tilers working their way around the roof. As a heritage building, built over a century ago, it naturally presented challenges to the team working on it. For Aggregate Industries, when measuring the roof, only parts could be accessed via the main house.
Viv Sweet, Managing Director at Rutland Roofing, said:"This was an interesting, but challenging job. The nature and size of the roof at Ranksborough Hall meant we needed a roofing supplier who was flexible and Aggregate Industries was just that. They made our life easier by allowing us to order the tiles in phases, as and when we completed a section of the roof and moved on to the next. We look forward to working with them again in the future.”
