I need a new roof on a 2 bedroom terraced house. I have requested quotes but
waiting on replies.
Anyone give me an idea (approx) on what to expect, from what I can gather
its just the tiles all the wood is sound,the quotes will also include
House in central scotland.
To give you any idea of cost, there's a lot of info missing.
The quote should include: -
Vapour barrier underlay
type of slate or tile
New lead work to abutments, valleys and chimneys
Type of fixings
Fair comment, not sure at this stage what is required only that it is tiles
+ guttering, 3 builders been out to view it but waiting on quotes comeing
in. I dont think Laths/lead or much else needing done but I presume will
need scaffolding, they did mention it would take approx 3 days to do.
The list above is absolutely the 'bare'minimum requirements to include for a
If the tiles/slates are that bad that they need renewal, then the underfelt
and battens will need renewal also.
When you do that, then any leadwork will also require renewal - and chimneys
need repointing if the compo is loose, flaking or missing.
My advice after being in the house maintenance 'trade' for over 40 years:
Do the job in its entirety at this stage for cost saving, longevity and
peace of mind.
