This 1870,s gable end was severely rotten and in desperate need of renovation. The left hand side bargeboard was an enormous 16 foot long and 12 x 2 inches in width and thickness. The Victorians didnt do things by halves ! As timber is now cut in metric sizes, this length was ordered specially to match the original. Although the dental work was not original it had been there for at least 30 years and so was deemed important to duplicate. The new dental was made by hand in a single, solid and continuous length which will resist weathering for longer.
The corroded cast iron gutting was stripped back to the bare and corrosion free metal so that a zinc rich coating could be applied. It is an easier option to change corroded guttering for a plastic alternative but you can not beat the durablity, clean lines and profile of the restored original cast iron gutter system.
