The Herne Bay Clock Tower Project

They say that the 176 year old, Grade II Listed Herne Bay Clock Tower is the oldest freestanding, purpose-built clock tower in the world. At 82ft tall and having been exposed to the harsh marine elements, this  traditional structure has started to erode and deteriorate, so the Heritage Lottery Fund and Canterbury City Council are funding a complete restoration of the Tower, to hopefully keep it in Herne Bay for a good few more decades.  Ballman Roofers part of the Herne Bay Clock Tower  Project We are very proud to be part of the restoration works to the clock tower, as this is a major … [Read more...]

Old Kent Pegs and Leadwork Turret Roofing

One of our favourite projects involved intricate detailing of not only lead work, but mitred tiling to form corners, the type of job to really test a roofer! I will soon be adding another page to this site relating to Oast house roofing and turrets in clay tiles and Old Kent Pegs. I will then up load some images of our proud work. The tiling itself was fishtail with bull-nose and plain peg tiles mixed, forming a nice pattern. The turret has 8 sides with vertical tiling beneath the windows.  The mitres were cut and lead soakers dressed for weathering, giving a smooth transition from once … [Read more...]

Lead Workers In Canterbury

Lead Roof Work in Canterbury We were proud of our leadwork project of 20 lead bays to an orangery roof in Canterbury. As we all know, lead roofing is coming under quite a bit of bad press lately, due to the desirability for scrap value. Still, despite this, there is a great call for lead workers, lead sheet roofers and lead work contractors in Kent. The reason for this is due to architectural design, conservation requirements and because when lead is correctly applied it is still the most durable roofing material available on the market. This particular project contains many bays with … [Read more...]

Slate Roof Extension In Canterbury

Slate Roof Extension in Canterbury This first floor extension over the garage, built by Ballman Roofing Contractors and designed by Anthony Swaine Architecture, demonstrates the importance of detailing, in particular the slate roof and ironwork create a subtle decoration to a simple and subservient extension. Slate roofs tend to be simple in form, due to the use of larger slates, meaning the surfaces are plain - the beauty is created in its arrangement and detail of the junctions with other roof surfaces or parts of the building. Slates of different shape, size and colour (which can … [Read more...]
