Relay ridge and bottom wrap

Filed under: Current Projects — admin @ 5:48 pm

We were called by one of our customers, she was having trouble with a rental flat. The problem was manifesting itself at what looked like rising damp, however there was no evidence of any problems. As a last resort we were called in, just in time too!

The bottom wrap – that’s the lowest section.of felt on th roof – had perished over time and now was letting water in the wall cavity. This was soaking through the cavity and water ingression was obvious in the downstairs rooms.

The problem was made worse with the ridge tiles cement that had eroded over the years.

The solution? Front and rear replacement bottom wraps and the ridge tiles rebedded. Now we have one happy customer and a happier tenant.
