New timber rafters and stone tiled roof using the existing tiles
At a property in Tellisford, Bradford upon Avon we carefully stripped the exisitng tiled roof off so we could reuse the stone tiles. We then removed the old roof rafters and completely re rafted and re layed the stone tiles.

Cotswold stone tile roof replacement
When renovating a Cotswold stone tile roof, depending on the roof's condition, we can often clean and reuse a large majority of the existing stone tiles. Examples of roofs where we have done this are shown in the pictures above.
We often use our own scaffolding which keeps costs down but can also arrange additional scaffolding and skips for more complex jobs where needed.
As we make all the stone tiles we use ourselves, we have our own large supply of tiles, both new and old which enables us to immediately source the tiles we need for each roofing job. This also lets us easily colour match and blend roof tile colours with the existing roof or surrounding buildings and avoid an obvious patching effect when repairing parts of a roof.

Cotswold stone tile roof repairs and roof renovations
This roof had a large patch of weather worn and damaged Cotswold stone tiles and rotten wooden battens which needed to be replaced.
After roof repairs - the worn stone tiles were removed, new, treated wooden battens fitted and new Cotswold stone tiles were laid.
Roof repairs were urgently needed on this old cottage roof. Both Cotswold stone tiles and wooden battens needed to be replaced and a new, breathable membrane fitted.
After extensive repairs using both old and new Cotswold stone tiles, this roof repair is still in keeping with the age of the cottage and the style of the surrounding buildings.
Mixed old and new Cotswold stone tile roofing
When replacing or repairing a Cotswold stone tile roof, in some instances many of the existing tiles are often still in good condition and can be reused.
Reusing old stone tiles saves money by reducing the number of new tiles needed for the roof repair or replacement. We will then mix both the old and new tiles carefully together and doing so we are able colour match the individual tiles so large patching effects on roofs, which sometimes show when only new tiles have been fitted, are less evident.
Mixing old and new Cotswold stone tiles is particularly useful if parts of a roof are being replaced or repaired.
Cotswold stone tile swept valley
The photographs to the left show the beginning of tiling a swept valley, tapered stone tiles which join two roof slopes together.
Specially cut Cotswold stone tiles are used to create swept valleys alternating with two tiles across and then three tiles across to establish a gentle curve - the valley.
Swept valleys are a skilled, traditional stone tile roofing technique not only used on listed buildings and conservation projects but also on both old and new properties with stone tiled roofs.

New stables with an imitation stone tile roof
We fitted this imitation Cotswold stone tile roof to a new build stable block near Tetbury in Gloucestershire.
When the building was up to wall plate height we fitted all the wooden roof trusses, roofing felt, a breathable membrane and treated wooden battens.
We then tiled the roof using look alike stone tiles rather than actual Cotswold stone tiles which keeps costs down but still gives the sought after Cotswold stone tile look in keeping with the main house on the estate and the surrounding barns and buildings.
Cotswold stone tile re-roofing
For this re-roofing job we re-used the majority of the Cotswold stone roof tiles we removed from the roof.
As we make all our own stone tiles we were able to easily colour match the extra tiles we needed to the existing tile colours so there were no signs of patching at all on the finished roof.
We also replaced the old rotten battens with new treated ones, insulated the roof and installed a new breathable membrane.
