Ecclesiastical and HeritageWhite and Sons Ltd have a rich experience in working with the local churches and places of worship. We also offer work on Listed properties and heritage sites, and can ensure that your new roof will suit your home and the desired aesthetics.
ecclesiastical Roofing and Repairs
White & Sons Ltd have many years experience renewing and refurbishing roofs on the local churches, and their buildings. We will work with the church warden and the church’s board to ensure that the roof is appropriately replaced to create a long-lasting roof without diminishing the classic look of a church. During the work, all of our staff are considerate towards the church’s ongoing services and commitments, and are able to alter their work schedule to help. As with all of our work, our customer’s best interests come first.
Heritage Roofing and Repairs
Having worked on listed properties, stone buildings, and castles, White and Sons Ltd have many years experience of heritage and traditional work. We specialise in replacing the roof of your existing home, all without detracting from it’s traditional look. We will talk you through your options regarding the roof tiles and covering, and are able to offer the tiles that will match your existing roof whilst increasing the roof’s lifespan. If you wish to recycle and reuse your roof tiles, we are also able to do so, making up a shortfall with new tiles or reclaimed tiles from local areas so that your home looks the same as it was first constructed.
We are also members of the Listed Property Owners Club Directory who will be able to offer you further advice.

Do I need Building Regulations?
If over 50% of your roof is to be replaced, then your Local Authority needs to be notified of the work. As members of Competent Roofer, we are able to self-certify that our refurbishment work complies with Building Regulations. Upon completion, Competent Roofer will send the necessary certification.
Do you issue a guarantee for your work?
White and Sons Ltd offer a 10-year written workmanship guarantee for all of our full roof replacement work. In addition to this, as members of Competent Roofer, we offer a 10-year insurance backed guarantee for refurbishment work (over 50% of roof). Written guarantees are sent upon completion of the works.
Do I need a scaffold?
The safety of our staff is paramount, and we will not carry out work where we feel it unsafe to do so. As such, we will require a scaffold to be erected where it would be unsafe to carry out the work without one. We own an aluminium tower which can be used for small scale works to help reduce costs and we can also arrange for and manage scaffolds on your behalf.
How do the guys on site take their tea and coffee?
The guys on site take their drinks white with either 1,2, or 3 sugars depending on who is on site. Mark and Joe in the office both take their coffee black and without sugar.
Are you insured?
White & Sons Ltd are fully insured for both Public (£5m) and Employers Liability (£10m) insurance. Copies of both of these can be seen upon request.
Do you need a deposit, and how do I pay?
White & Sons Ltd do not ask for any form of deposit but do require an ‘Acceptance Form’ to be signed agreeing to the work under our Terms and Conditions. We send interim invoices (job size dependent) which can be paid by bank transfer. We can also take credit card payments but are obliged to charge 2.5% to cover the additional costs.
How do you keep the rain out when you remove my roof?
We will always ensure that the areas of roof that have been stripped off can be weathered within the same day and weather forecasts are checked daily. Also, all the membranes that we use have been tested by BBA.
