Welcome to Rother Valley Roofing

Rother Valley Roofing was set up by John Pickering over 10 years ago to provide a craftsmanship focused service to owners of period and listed buildings in Kent and East Sussex.

In 2012 we were very proud to be presented with the Craftsmanship Award by the Rye Conservation Society for the re-roofing of St Anthony’s in Church Square - one of the most photographed buildings in Rye.     Read more here ...

We undertake all aspects of external renovation including: slate and tile roofing, chimney repairs to complete re-builds incorporating a lead damp-proof course, new lead flashings, timber repairs, joinery – new windows and doors made to order. We will repair lead-light windows or have new ones made using the original glass.

We use traditional building techniques allied with modern methods where appropriate.

Kent Peg tiles: sometimes we use second hand tiles but often have new hand made ones manufactured to our specification.

Lime mortars: traditional lime mortar is the best material for use in older buildings; its plasticity can better accommodate movement whilst still allowing the building to breathe. We will match the type of lime and sands to the original.
