Gynn Construction Ltd, Tristram House, New Polzeath

This incredible 5400 sq ft, three storey property with breathtaking views over Polzeath beach, the mouth of the Camel Estuary and along the North Cornish coastline was built by Gynn Construction in 2010/2011.

The roofing works commenced in December 2010 which as you can imagine from the location was not easy to felt and batten with high winds coming right off the coast.  However, this 4 month roofing project, is one of our finest achievement to date.

The roof was covered in 16×8 SSQ Riverstone Argentine natural slates.  To the dormer roofs and centre projection roof at the rear of the property, these were covered in code 5 sheet lead.  There is also numerous lead parapet gutters and flashings to both front and rear and all this leadwork was expertly executed by our senior lead technician, Richard Bristow.  To the front balcony, Graham Barker covered the floor using Scott Bader GRP flat roofing system.
