Redland's Craftsman gets mansion house call

Both Latham Road and Chaucer Road, the oldest streets in Cambridge, were put under a conservation order in 2000. This means that any external work carried out on the buildings in these streets, including this property must fit in with the traditional aesthetic.

The home-owner chose Craftsman tiles because they have the rustic appearance of an old tile teamed with the strength and durability of a new tile.

Speaking about the project, Kieran McGinty, owner of K McGinty Roofing said “The property on Latham Road is well over a hundred years old and had undergone some roof repair work in the 1980’s due to a leak. We were contracted to strip down all of the existing roof tiles and start from scratch after the repair job began to fail. I suggested the Craftsman due to its rustic quality which I felt suited the essential characteristics of the area. I showed a sample of the tile to the homeowner and he said yes straight away.”

“I have used the Craftsman tile on a number of other recent projects and find that it is easy to work with and the customer is always pleased with the end result”
