Another little job completed in 2014 in Reservoir Close, Stroud, Gloucestershire.

Customer had a problem with damp.

I stripped back the roof tiles and discovered the insulation was not adequate and that it was causing a damp spot. The felt had also rotted out. Replaced this with a new breathable felt at the bottom of the roof and replaced the insulation.

I also treated the timber work to help prevent future decay.

Customer Testimonial:

“Adrian was very efficient and clean and tidy in his work. I have no hesitation in reccomending him to any of my friends and neighbours. The work was finished to a high standard and he has no complaints from me”
