  1. Hi – I’m trying to organise a few quotes for a complete re-roof. My house is a Victorian building with Staffordshire Blue clay tiles. With the new roof, I believe there are two main types (but please forgive my total ignorance here), dry-ridge (likely more expensive upfront but saves on ongoing maintenance costs) and mortar-based (likely cheaper upfront but will have ongoing maintenance costs). Is someone able to answer my questions, below, as I’m getting really confused about what is best? Dry-ridge – will it be possible to keep the traditional look of the roof whilst using a dry-ridge system? This is the most important thing for me as I don’t want to make the house look silly with a Victorian building and “modern” looking roof if it would look “modern”. Mortar-based – how often are we likely to require maintenance on a mortar-based roof? Especially bigger jobs that will require scaffolding. Can small issues be fixed by climbing a ladder, or will scaffolding be required in all instances? As you can imagine, I’m just trying to gauge what the likely ongoing costs are going to be. I've had a couple of quotes already. One roofer mentioned it would be hard to get the traditional look using dry-ridge and the other said it would look fine with dry-ridge. Thanks in advance. Jpcamps
  2. Howdy All, I spent last night comparing prices on a very slow internet connection which I did not enjoy, Instead of doing it all over again tonight I thought I would ask for suggestions first. especially considering I ordered my veluxes from a website suggested by @Barney12 that I had not found on my own. Where did you guys find the best for roofing accessories? to be precise I need -70 aluminium soakers for 10x20 slates -about 5000 30mm COPPER!! clouts (7-8 kgs) - 15m of dry ridge system for big old half round ridge - 35m ish of eave protector -16m ish of 150mm lead (i recon code 3 will be ok for step flashing but I had better ask first) and that's about it I think.. I just ordered the fascia and soffit from BP plastics because i like them, but they don't do everything and suggestions would be greatly appreciated Ed P.s if this should be in a different section just say and ill move it
