Hi all, we are interested in buying a house but it may need some repair work doing to the roof and I was wondering if anyone would be able to give me a rough idea to the cost before I put in an offer. We are first time buyers so we dont really know how to price it up roughly against the asking price.

The house is an 1900(s) 3 bed detached house. There is water being let in causing damp on the walls in one of the bedrooms. We have noticed that the slates are not over hanging and the water can run straight down the wall. Also the neighbour has said that they have had issues with that wall being damp for some time so we think there may be rafter damage too. Roughly, does anyone know how much it would cost to replace the rafters? (At least the first pair)

There is a flat roof over the bathroom with a concrete top, not really ideal and again is causing damp where it joins the house due to lead flashing being damaged, how much roughly would it cost to have that converted into a pitched roof.

Thanks in advance :)

without photos of the interior an exterior of all the stuff youve mentioned its not possible to say how to fix or what it might cost. maybe some others on herecould give you a better idea

lots of water damage looks worse than it is to house buyers so dont let it put you off espcialy if you can work a reduction.

I have tried to upload pictures of the house in the worst areas but its not allowing me to post them. We are just after a worst case scenario with the figures so we can use it when making an offer. Thank you though :thumbleft:

Please post the dimensions. Also when getting quotes ask for a breakdown between parts and labour.
