Slate Roof at Dulverton Devon

Our slate roofers have been busy re-building a slate roof near Dulverton in Devon. This slate roof was really two roofs and was adjoined to a thatched roof. The job was priced to include all materials and labour and some pretty extensive timber work needed repairing, on completion the customer received a 20 year guarantee. The scaffold is up and the old slates are removed

There is no under-felt on the old roof and the timber is in bad condition in places, needing repairing or replacing.
