  1. Hello people, this is my firs tread on this forumI I enjoy doing DIY job when I know how to do it. Saying that I'm relatively new to roofing and I only done flashing/pointing/valley repairs in the past. live in 1920's terraced house with gable roof. I've just finished re roofing the back of my house (garden side) using the mix old plain concrete tiles (cleaned thoroughly) and lots of new ones as well. I replaced all the battens as well as re-beded the verge and the ridge tiles and done repointing as well as new lead flashing. Now I'm about to do the front of the house and I would like to ask you for your opinion. I found a batch of new plain dreadnought clay tiles on eBay selling cheap. Would it be okay to reroof the front of the house using all new clay tiles similar in colour? I've seen properties which have newer extensions done with clay tiles while parts of the house still have concrete tiles on.

  2. So I did a full reroof recently. The damage we were getting was back so we decided to go with the only company operating during lockdown... this is a picture of the back of the house. There is a slope between the joint that they put to separate my house and my neighbours and the slates don’t sit flat on top of each other. More noticeable is the slates around the Velux window. I didn’t give it any importance initially but it just Doesn’t sit right with me. Should I call the roofer back?
  3. Hi, a real newbie here. We’ve just bought a house with a very decent 5x4.5m conservatory, double hipped, coming off two house walls. The problem is the polycarbonate roof, which we plan to have internally insulated with a multi foil (with air gap) and UPVC cladding. I wondered, as an extra waterproof and insulation method, whether we could also put some box profile roofing sheets over the top of the existing poly roof, with additional air gap and multi foil layer between. I know the best solution would be to replace the roof with a solid one, but hoped this might be an alternative. Would it work?
