Commercial Heritage Roofing
Architectural Leadwork Pty Ltd are often approached by leading heritage architects and conservation consultancy firms in and around Sydney to respond to RFQ’s or tenders requiring specialist restoration works of commercial heritage buildings.
At Architectural Leadwork, we not only understand the materials required to repair and maintain commercial heritage roofs and structures, we have the knowledge and experience in traditional methods and applications of these materials. We have in excess of 25 years’ experience in heritage roof repairs using a variety of materials such as lead, slate, copper and metal.
Founder and Director Kevin Allan completed his training in Europe. This region is home to many famous monuments and heritage listed buildings. The opportunity to complete your training whilst being exposed to such grand international architecture should not be underestimated. This exposure brings a wealth of international knowledge to the Australian market. Our knowledge of heritage buildings, along with our experience in working with these unique materials, really gives us the edge on our competitors.
It is not only roofs we attend to. Yes, many of the projects we undertake involve the installation of new lead flashing onto roof sheets, installing new kg lead sheet in locked seams around stone capping, lead welding and lead fabrication, installing geo-fabric under lead and ensuring placement of elastomeric joints. However, we do much, much more. We restore and replace weather veins, supply and install decorative cast iron and undertake sandstone repair and pointing.
At Architectural Leadwork, we are passionate about the preservation and conservation of historic buildings. At a commercial level, we work with architects, local councils and major construction companies to restore structures to their original built form.
We offer a cohesive approach to project management and are able to manage each project from inception to completion.
Architectural Leadwork is privileged to have worked to either restore or maintain many beautiful, prestigious and culturally significant buildings and sites in and around Sydney. The projects we work on are interesting and many projects have involved delving into historical records unearthing history to restore prominent buildings to their former glory. Heritage preservation and roof restoration is not only an investment for today but also for generations to come.
