Heritage Roofing Experts

Our building contractors at C Ansell & Sons are widely regarded as a leading authority in the preservation and repair of Horsham stone roofing. Frequently seen on the roofs of older homes, ecclesiastical buildings and converted barns, this finely-grained sandstone is sourced in Sussex. It has been used as a reliable building material since Roman times.

With each unique piece, we can create stunning installations which weather over time to blend beautifully with their surroundings. The charm of this incredible natural stone is a must for property owners looking to work with local builders who specialise in creating sympathetic and complementary structures throughout the rural landscape.

As an 8th-generation family-run business, we’ve worked with Horsham stone for many years and have also contributed to various printed articles about its characteristics and usage in listed building renovations and general building services. These services also include barn conversions and traditional lime rendering applications.
