  1. My missus text me today at work to say that she's just realised that the neighbour's gutter along the back of the house is emptying onto our roof. I got home and sure enough it is. We think that they've just had it done over the past few days as we've heard drilling/noise coming from their side recently, but are not 100% sure. We are mid-terrace, as is our neighbour. We live slightly downhill, so their roof is a good 2 or 3 foot above ours. Looking at the back of the houses tonight i can see that the neighbour has no downpipe. All houses on our terraced row have downpipes apart from their
  2. Hi I'm posting here in the hope that someone can help me figure out what the heck I can do to solve my problem! To cut a long story short, we started leasing a commercial unit in Oct 2017 and turned it into a dance studio. We raised £3500 in 2 months to pay for laminate floor (with padding underneath as it was originally concrete), fitted radiators, fitted a kitchen in the waiting room, painted the wall with some cool art work, etc. We were really hoping to turn the space into our new 'home' The lease states that he is responsible for the externals, we are responsible f
  3. I'm going to be having a new roof on the house shortly, and I don't want to employ some one without having a clearly defined contract in place. But having never done anything like this before.. I have no idea where to begin. Are there any templates out there that I can download, and tweak to suit, and most importantly... it will need to be legally binding in case of any issues. If a contractor refuses to sign a contract... they won't be hired. Any decent and reputable company would have no qualms about having a contract in place.
  4. After the bad weather a couple of weeks ago, I noticed a damp patch on the ceiling in one of the bedrooms, and upon further investigation, several smaller patches in the back bedroom. So I went outside with my binoculars and had a good look at the roof front and back... I could see no damage, loose/slipped tiles or anything obvious. I got the step ladder out and pocked my head into the loft, and discovered that a load of the roofing felt has ripped away, exposing the underside of the tiles and batons. Contacted the buildings insurance and they arranged a roofer to come out and inspec
  5. Hi. We and our neighbor have a shared roof, also the roof it’s at an angle, he’s at the highest point, we are lower. Last year we had a leak, we called a roofer to check and he wanted to check neighbors loft, he didn’t agree. We fixed everything on our side, now we have a leak again, our roofer said it’s defiantly them, but again, they don’t want to let anyone up there. What can we do? We contacted the council but both properties are freehold. Thank you
  6. In November 2015 I had the roof of terraced flat repaired/replaced (20 year guarantee on both labour and materials - ha ha!). The work involved repairing/replacing rotten timber and strengthening the roof where it was no longer supported by an internal wall (removed by previous owner). The contractor mentioned Building Control and consulting a Structural Engineer but when I contacted Building Control they knew nothing of the job. The roof is very poorly done, there have been a number of leaks and the structural work is badly done. The contractor has been back numerous times to correct many thi
  7. hi everyone, A little advice needed please. on the 6th july I had a new polycarbonate roof fitted aprox 5 mtrs by 4 mtrs which has turned out to be a right bodge job done. Morning after fitting I noticed endcaps had fallen off, wrong material used on side frames, poly roof sheets had 2 inch gaps near to house so rain can get in, sheets were cut cut so badly it looks like they had been chopped with an axe, glazing bars lifting, scratches real bad big scratches. I contacted business owner who said ill come out which he did 3 days later to be told yes the fitters had codged the job
  8. Hi, I'll keep this as short as possible, I currently live in an ex-council flat which I own, the flat is one of 12 in 3 conjoined blocks of 4 flat's each, prior to christmas the council, who act as the factor for the block notified me that a scottish government grant had been awarded to the block for the installation of external insulation/cladding and replacing the external rendering on the property, since this was all being covered by the grant made available by the scottish government no contribution would be required by any of the private owners in the block. Soon afterwards I wa
  9. Hi all, The insurer we had at the time, was Sainsburys. We had a garage fire a few years back now, so the garage was refitted with new plasterboards, lighting and a new roof. The problem is, they had general contractors replace the roof and they did it wrong. They were called back about 7 times in total, to fix the roof, because it kept leaking, in multiple places. The company sent out an inspector at one point because we kept complaining and he said the roof was on upside down So it was redone again, by the same contractors, not roofing specialists and it seemed to hold f
  10. Hi, Hope I'm in the right place. Looking for some guidance regard some work done on a flat roof to an outbuilding done on my Father in Laws property. The workmen came and did the work, he paid them and the next day he noticed that parts of the felt had not been fully secured. He has now contacted them twice to come back and put it right, they have stated a day for them to comeback and sort it out twice, but both times they have not turned up. What should be our next step, any help gratefully received.
  11. our roof was treated by Weatherguard and on 4th June 2010 we received a 25 year guarantee. the work and guarantee cover against 'flaking, peeling, discoloration,moss and growth. approx a year after the work was done we received a letter telling us that the company had changed owners and the guarantee was no longer valid. we were given an option to pay £35 to retain the guarantee with the new owners. we decided not to take this up. now the roof is showing signs of a moss regrowth and the pointing between the ridge tiles has come away in many places revealing the old white mortar beneath.
