This one day course aims to provide an introductory guide to traditional Scottish roofs including function, structure, external roof shapes, typical details and decorative features, the causes of deterioration and the main causes of failure. Practical work includes sizing and trimming slates, setting out and nailing a simple traditional slate roof and undertaking repairs.
By the end of this course attendees will be able to recognise the structure of roofs, different external roof shapes, their detailing and decorative features, understand how natural slate was formed and the variety of slates used in the past on traditional roofs as well as the main causes of failure on a roof.
They will also learn about specifying roof repairs with sufficient detail to retain the character of a traditional slate roof.
This course is aimed at anyone who has an interest in maintaining traditional roofs either through owning one, having to specify repair or replacement or tendering for work.
