We are committed preservationists and our work ensures historical roofs and buildings flourish and are looked after for the benefit of future generations.

At Balmore roofing, we understand the importance of conserving the unique features of historic buildings and monuments whilst still maintaining their cleanliness and integrity.

We are genuine experts in historic restorations in Glasgow, taking great care, attention and meticulous detail to the workmanship of the past.

Unfortunately, it is a sad fact that ‘shoddy workmen’ without the proper training in handling historic stonework and leadwork can actually make the situation worse.  Whilst you would expect us to say that, we sadly have all too often been called out to fix a botched job by other companies claiming to offer historic building restoration but really can’t.
