A new Gerard roof for a very old building
A recent visitor to the western Ukraine brought back some photos of this church which was originally built in the 15th Century. The original roof was made from wooden shakes which were rotting and had to be replaced. The reroof was done in Gerard textured CoronaShakes.
The funding was provided by the Ukrainian Institute of Architecture and EU grants. The project, now completed, provides an example to the conservationists who have often resisted using Gerard Roofing products on historical buildings.
This church is thought to be the oldest building ever re-roofed with Gerard CoronaShake. If anyone can confirm that there is an older building that uses Gerard Roofing, Gerard would be interested to know about it.
