Heritage Roofing & Conservation

The majority of Bain & Irvine’s domestic and commercial workload is executed on traditional Pre 1919 buildings, not only in the Unesco World Heritage Site of Edinburgh Centre, but also in the Scottish Borders, Scottish Highlands and Glasgow. The importance of the preservation of our national buildings cannot be understated, and it is no secret that the retention of a watertight building begins with the roof. Whether a roof is complicated or simple, it serves the sole purpose of keeping its occupants dry and warm.

Our director, Graeme Millar, is Chairman of NFRC Heritage committee and in partnership with the four main Heritage bodies in the UK, including Historic Scotland, he constantly beats the drum of maintenance and more maintenance. All home owners who live in a pre 1919 Heritage building have a direct responsibility for its up keep and performance, in an effort to preserve its heritage for future generations.

Producing and training excellent tradesmen who are qualified to the highest levels that the UK can offer is another area in which Bain and Irvine excel. Whether it is a conical turret or a laced valley, we have the individuals who can produce a quality finish for our clients. It is indeed no surprise that Bain & Irvine continue to pick up Scottish & UK awards for the quality of their workmanship. Their work on turrets in North Berwick was shortlisted for a Heritage award at the 2014 National Awards in London.
