Fine leadwork graces award-winning extension

For the new roof of a restaurant extension to the Grade One-listed Gravetye Manor in West Sussex, Matthew Marchant of M Marchant Specialist Lead Roofing Contractors Ltd used Code 6 lead throughout.

The roofing project was shortlisted in last year’s Murdoch Awards, while the new restaurant won a Mid Sussex Design Award – the commercial category of the 2019 Sussex Heritage Trust awards – and was a finalist in the 2019 SECBE Constructing Excellence Awards.

Architects Charles Knowles described the leadwork thus: “Traditional lead roofing work and battened maple ceiling is a fine example of good craftsmanship.”

M Marchant Specialist Lead Roofing Contractors Ltd is a family-run company of professional roofing and leadwork specialists with over 30 years experience. They can take on any size job, from a small repair to full re-roof. They offer the high standards of craftsmanship demanded by the Lead Contractors Association at prices that are extremely competitive.

As well as general leadwork, the main areas covered by the company include dormers, flashings, flat roofs, lead cladding, chimney flashings, lead fire walls and minor roofing works. They can supply and fix both milled lead sheet to BS1178 and traditional sand-cast lead sheet to meet any contract specifications.
