Hi Everyone,

My roof has taken a battering in the recent winds. I didn't spot the damage myself, a neighbour pointed it out to me.

The side of the roof where the damage has occurred faces roughly SW.

Basically some tiles high up on the roof near the gable end have moved and a few of these have broken. Also the end ridge tile has cracked.

I need to get someone in to do this for me as I am not good with heights, not this high anyway.

I have looked inside the loft and thus far there are no leaks and all the rafters are sound.

I was wondering what I need to look out for when employing someone to do the work?

I know its difficult to gauge how much this is likely to cost without looking at the damage close up but any ideas would be appreciated.

The house is a semi built in the 50s and located in Rutland in the East Midlands.

Many thanks in anticipation of any replies.

Kind regards,

Raddleman

The damage is not that extensive and while it would involve partial scaffolding (probably Quik-fit) should
not take more than one or two days for two men erecting their own scaffold.. The tile looks to be a standard concrete tile
but a colour match may be a problem.
Your best policy is to contact a couple of Roofing Companies local to you and ask them to make a site visit and quote for the work.

Its not wind damage.
The verge has dropped, make sure your not under it when it all comes away.
Needs a proper scaff, strip the whole verge, do both sides while your at it, you probably have a ladder system or to much overhang.
You wont notice anything from inside.
