Roofing repairs

Recommended Posts

We've had a few slates fall off over the last few months, looking at the roof more are loose so need repairing to. When we purchased the house, last year, we had a survey carried out that suggested the roof would need replacing in the next 10 years, so it wasn't something I was planning to tackle this soon.


To my knowledge, it's the original roof, so approx 150 years old, no felt/membrane etc below the slates. The pictures don't really do it justice, multiple slates on all sides are lifting, some are slipped/cracked, you can see daylight from the loft. What would you do?


Worst case I suspect would be a full reroofing with wind tight membrane, possibly looking at PV at the same time. It's just not an expense we had budgeted for this early on.

Could you replace with interlocking black clay tiles and in-roof solar panels?  The current roof looks knackered.


Pictures 1 and 2 show the south facing roof space. I suspect the section with a gable end could be used for PV - it's approx 4m x 2m so not massive - but I'm not sure how useful the double hipped section would be given it's pitch and the massive chimney stack in the way.
