As discussed on the phone, we are looking to have our flat roof (extension at the back of the house) insulated and the roof covering replaced, as we’ve had a leak into our son’s bedroom below – probably where the drain enters the roof. A builder said the roof covering should be below the black bit around the bottom of the drain, not above.
We appointed builders to refurbish the entire building, you will have noticed that I put roofers in inverted commas previously because these workers are good with bricks and mortar but I came to realise too late that roofers they weren’t!
As you can see when I went to look at this roof it was cold and snow was still around. Apart from the flashings being all over the place the roof looked quite flat, an easy one to overlay! If you look at the roof around the pipe in the center you can see that its cracked and the roof is actually leaking badly from this area, its very hard to get the old type felts to dress around details like the pipe.
