On rare occasions assignments finds us and not the other way around. Toft Copper got this assignment because Anne from NTC recommended us to her co-worker Lasse. We got together and talked price and the content of the assignment. This case contained 1.300 m2 slate roof, 35 dormers, a lot of gutters and downpipes and different kind of edging.
From time to time we conduct projects where we doesn’t work with copper but other roofing materials, but our work ethics is always the same. Only high quality – everytime! The craftsmen on this assignment only had one focus; to make the most beautiful and functional slate and zinc roof in all of Frederiksberg. The end-result certainly speaks for itself, mission accomplished!
About the build:
In the process of selecting suppliers we chose “Danish Copper sale” (Dansk Kobbersalg) to delivering of the slate; the quality is outstanding and their service too.
It was a complicated task and a quarter into the building process we discovered, that the roof construction needed supported by steel struts. It pushed the timetable in the wrong direction, but we managed to overcome this challenge too!
The client chose in collaboration with the advisers, not to change the outer part of the dormers. They estimated that it would be able to last approx 15 years, with the state it was in at the time. We found that the best result would have been to change it all, but we fully understand the reasoning behind; because it was a significant additional cost to renovate all 35 dormers. Instead we created some great transitions to the existing dormers.
