Looks as if I will end up doing this. Thanks.
However, I am concerned that there is rockwool insulation on the
inside of the felt roof. As it is soaked with condensation would
it be better to remove it and ensuer there is a thick layer on
the loft floor - rather than the underside of the roof?
I always thought that a cold loft and a warm house is the right
way to go about it ! Am I right, - has the previous owner been
TOO diligent here?
