Stainless Steel Porch on a Residential Building
We were contacted by the company responsible for these residential units to replace an old lead porch roof. They required a hard wearing material with a long life, which was also exceptionally robust.
The other part of the specification was to ensure that the roof closely mirrored the other porches within this heritage development.
We recommended Terne Coated Stainless Steel (TCS), which could be worked into a round batten cap style to mimic and replace the old existing lead.
TCS is now widely used to replace lead on TCS heritage buildings and churches. It has an exceptionally long life and can be crafted to the same design, additionally it weathers into a very similar colour to lead. It has very little scrap value and therefore isn’t prone to damage or theft, indeed the techniques for fixing TCS in place make it difficult to remove.
