    • London Building Renovation is a member of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors.  We have a small dedicated team of roofers, with the two skilled members of the team  having their NVQ 3 in Roof Slating and Tiling.  We specialise in slating and plain tile roofs and are keen to promote the benefits, both aesthetic and performance, of clay and slate.  This focus on the two traditional types of roof covering, ties in with our general philosophy of correct period restoration. 

      Continuing the theme of training and manufacturer accreditation, Kevin has also overseen and implemented acceptance as Velux VIP installers and approved installers of the Mustang seamless guttering scheme. 

      When it comes to flat roofing, we have taken a very serious approach to this often maligned form of roofing.  If carried out correctly, a flat roof can last many years.  Under the Team Icopal scheme we are able to offer a manufacturer's guarantee of 20 years, with Firesmart installation.  We completed one of these installations at the Lycée Français Francais in South Kensington and are shortly to undertake a 600m² installation in Neasden.  We also install the Evolution overlay system, which enables you to extend the life of an existing flat roof with a fully guaranteed single layer overlay.  For more details please contact the office

      Quality standards and technical issues are dealt with by Kevin Nind, founding partner in LBR.  Kevin holds an NVQ 5 in Construction Management and regularly attends the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) technical meetings and he has sat on both Pitched and Flat Roof Committees in the past.  Most recently he attended NFRC Head Office with Kevin Taylor, the Technical Director of the NFRC, to make sure we comply with the revised British Standards on slating of roofs in Britain.  Kevin has taken LBR standards very seriously and in 2013 we became Competent Roofers under the self-certification scheme, as well as being accepted a year earlier to be Redland Select roofers and part of the Team Icopal network.

      As part of the Velux VIP installer's network, we are able to undertake fitting of all Velux products including solar panels.  Kevin has attended the NFRC's Solar Panel Installer course; ensuring correct installation is always guaranteed.

      If manufacturer's guarantees are required, LBR are able to offer this across the range of roofing that we carry out, whether it is flat roof or pitched roof.  Our operatives are trained to a high standard and we regularly attend manufacturers' installer's courses and are committed to offering the complete roofline service for the discerning customer. 

      Legislation states that when replacing over 25% of a roof, all thermal elements of the roof must be upgraded; this basically means that you must insulate the entire roof space.  You can either do this at loft floor level, or you can do it at rafter level.  One is very cheap to carry out (loft ceiling level) and the other is more expensive (rigid insulation at rafter level).  The downside with insulating at ceiling level is that you lose all storage facilities in the loft, as the insulation sticks up 27cm above the ceiling height.  Insulating at this level is very much an easy DIY job.  Insulating at rafter level has to be done more carefully, as there is a much greater risk of creating condensation without following strict procedures

      From restoration of original period details at soffit and fascia board level, through to traditional cast iron or modern extruded aluminium systems, up through slated and plain clay tiled roofs, flat roofs with 20 year guarantees or correctly re-built chimneys, we should be considered first when attention to detail and quality is required.
