  1. When my old man had a meeting with one of the VAT agents they suggested we just add the VAT on to the total amount due and not tell them that there is VAT added on.

    What type of boarding above rafters

    It's purely because it is cheaper and doesn't make much of a difference

    What type of boarding above rafters

    Major house builders don't do it purely because it is cheaper and not required.

    Slated houses need sarking but if there is tiles on it the battens alone help hold the trusses together also. The only time I see it now on sites is when they are being built for the council. Aye persimmon, Cala and all the other major builders are poor these days.....

    I work in the central belt of Scotland and very rarely will house builders put any form of sarking or boards on roofs.

    Every house builder I have worked for in Scotland just does felt over the rafter now.

    It sounds stupid but lick your fingers and wet the blade, works well

    Battens - colours

    It's not just an English problem. Most houses built with tiles in Scotland are built with felt over the joists, unless it is for a council.

    Can you name that tile?

    This is late but this is 100% not a Scotcem tile, it is more than likely an Annandale which is the old Russell brand. Russell tile is the best fit.
