Heritage Conservation Stone
The Classic "Cotswold" roof style.
Have you been dreaming of a natural Cotswold stone roof since you saw it in The Holiday or Downton Abbey? Did you fall in love with the golden honey color of the stone and promise yourself one day you'd build the home of your dreams?
For over 20 years, we've fulfilled clients' dreams of having a Cotswold stone roof in North America.
It creates a truly unique look, never to be confused with any other stone with its color, rough surface, split finish edges, and a wide variety of lengths and widths.
Visually identical to the historic quarried stone, Heritage Conservation shares its size, variety, and color, but as a cast stone solves every one of the issues found in the installation of a natural stone.
Conservation is installed using a diminishing graduated installation. To aid in installation speed, each piece is cast with a nib to hang on a horizontal batten. This feature significantly increases the installation rate over conventional slate. Each stone has two nail holes for secure fastening, and the roof can be installed down to a 5/12 pitch.
Supplied in an extensive range of lengths and widths, the stones are produced to look as natural in color and surface texture. Knowledge of its manufactured creation is known only to those who installed the roof.
Manufactured in the UK at a state-of-the-art factory. Heritage products are cast from over 100 molds taken from natural Cotswold stone pieces. Once cured, the pieces are inspected by hand before being crated for shipping.
Tested in Europe and the US, conservation meets the highest levels for freeze-thaw, strength, and fire resistance.
Heritage conservation is 100% green, meaning that 100% of the materials can be repurposed or recycled at their end of life.
