Event description
This half-day seminar will focus on the historic evolution, conservation, repair and thermal upgrading of traditional roofing in Ireland

About this Event

Roofs are a critical element in historic structures, both protected and non-protected, providing weathering, structural stability and architectural interest. Their form and detailing is especially important in historic streetscapes where massing and authentic finishes are a key townscape component, not least in Architectural Conservation Areas. Best practice approaches to roof repair and upgrading are vital to ensure the overall health and special interest of older buildings is maintained.

This half-day seminar will focus on thse themes with an emphasis on urban and slate-clad roofs of the 18th and 19th centuries.
