Hello all

I hope you are well.

My sisters, neighbours have had an extension built onto the boundary (flat roof from the house going to a pitched roof) she has shown me some pictures and to me it doesn’t seem right what they have done. If it’s an issue purely from an aesthetics point of view then I guess she will have to just dry her eyes. As you can see from the early picture there is a big gap between the top of the outer skin and the top of the roof. This gap has then been barley covered by ply. Is this the correct way to have gone about this or should they have bricked up to the top with the internal beams resting on the internal wall? As I understand it even marine ply would give up in a relatively short time.

Any ideas as to whether this looks up to scratch? If it does any advice on products to cover it up?

Thanks in advance.

Jim

the ply wont last long neither will that piece of softwood architrave and a random blob of cement, have the people paying for the work see the pic's

It doesn't look right to me but then again iKN.

edit. I would check the plans via the councils planning portal and see what was specified, its a party wall so there liable for the works, as its there property technically you cant touch it

Hi Bob

Thanks very much for taking the time to reply. Good point on the planning site. I’ll do a search and see what I can find.

Cheers

Jim

no expert :lol:
shouldn't there be a gutter under the pitched roof and a brick or so difference in height
this would allow the the two roofs to be separated rather than a bad and awkward attempt to merged :dunno:
