Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould has created issues for us at our old property, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we do about roof repairs?

Questions like this are often asked of building surveyors by Stratford Upon Avon buyers who are aware that property can be blighted by roofing woes. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar ties, ought to be checked, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Stratford Upon Avon, but

it is a health and safety necessity. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Speak to Roofspace Solutions of Hatton Rock Business Centre, Hatton Rock, Stratford-Upon-Avon, CV37 0NQ on 01789 209006 for a quote.
