Medieval Roof Repair in Dover

DekSeal roof covering on a medieval period property porch in Dover.

The porch was replaced with oak, scarfed into the existing framework. We installed a lead drip detail, dressed over the edges and then applied a DekSeal Membrane to the surface, encasing the oak posts and bonding to the glass at the abutment, to weather.

From the ground, it looks like a typical lead flat top roof, but the substrate is a DekSeal Membrane, significantly reducing labour time, weight and ultimately cost.


According to archaeologists, Dover has been occupied since Stone Age times and has a very long and interesting history, which includes many medieval buildings.
