Case Study – Mrs. Gilberthorpe, Burton upon Trent

At the request of the client we visited her buy to let property in Burton upon Trent to ascertain what was wrong with her current garage door and to take some measurements for our proposals for a replacement garage roof. What we discovered was that the concrete front lintel had collapsed onto the garage door pressing down onto it hard. The building was obsolete therefore replacement garage panels were no longer obtainable so we put forward the suggestion that the lintel be removed/disposed of entirely and replaced with a substantial timber fascia over clad in PVC. Our client selected light-grey roofing and white plastisol coated barge boards.
