This was a cracker of a project to work on for Stephen Gardiner Homes who create one off bespoke show stopping homes. Working on their site was fantastic, the organisation is some of the best we’ve seen and we were thrilled to slot into this well oiled machine.The slate used on this project was The Hastings Spanish Grade A which comes with a full 100 year guarantee.
We undertook the slatingelement only on this project, working around the solar panels and slating in the various sized roofing elevations.Key to a great slating project is the grading of the slates, this is where our apprentices start their learning journey of the slate material itself. Getting this part of the process correct is key to working with this natural product and is vital to deliveran exceptional finish.
Failing to do so results in thick slates next to thin and the end result does not achieve the desired uniform look and can in some cases cause water ingress.Our drone images show this sizeable project in all it’s glory and with theexpertise of StephenGardiner Homes this will be a place where one luckyfamily will make many memories in a home built to last.
