Coming full circle: the complete dry roof - 22/11/2011

It might sound stupid saying you want a dry roof – but in technical circles, this refers to the verges, valleys and ridges. Now that we’re talking about the verges, valleys and ridges, it’s clear we’ve come full circle in the roofing project. What began with me noticing mortar crumbling from the verges has turned into a large-scale re-roofing project that will leave me with a brand new, efficient roof.

Lets get technical......sort of - 18/11/2011

You should never be afraid to ask the roofer how he intends to fix your tiles - and there is no reason why you can’t specify how you, as the homeowner, want your tiles fixed. The choices are usually nail or clip, or both. Some roofers don’t even nail all the tiles, so a good starting point is to insist that every tile be fixed.
