Shed-pitched roof refelting, nail & bond laps 57ft x7ft - Garages & Sheds job in Coalville

“This new felted. apex roof as turned out to a total failure .in the specification all laps should have been sealed and bonded with mastic .they where not . I showed Steve Ruddy OSM Building contractors an example of the felt i wanted . but they used an inferior grade and used just nails and no mastic which has turned the roof into a colander. all instructions are written on the wrap around the roll of felt .to ignore the instructions was not a good idea . I have had no response from OSM ”

“Came to look at a tiling job and gave a quote and said he would come on Saturday 21st July. Didn't turn up and didn't bother to call to let us know. No real apology, said he had double booked and would come today (Sun 22nd July) at 9am. As expected, he didn't turn up and once again didn't bother to call. Caused us a lot of inconvenience. Very unprofessional and completely unreliable. Wouldn't recommend at all.”

Barnet being london,that would be expensive .
it all depends which area of the u.k you live.
for me the midlands being our local area,call out within 25 mile radius
would be ?25 but this would be deducted from the cost of the works if we were to carry out the repair.
any other area is increased by ?1 per mile .
this is purely to cover fuel costs.
My prefered choice would be worcster bosch,or glowworm.
Price in area of half day rate 70 pound, tipping fee 35 pound
total cost 105 pounds.
to carry waste i need waste carriers permit/licence to which i pay an annual fee , and the waste site charges trade waste prices
I prefer not to plaster over artex as putting wet plaster on artex revitalises it and will make it more likely to let go of ceiling. much better method is to overboard and skim.
Unless you have 12volt fan , keep well away from shower.
as long as fan is at the highest part of ceiling it will remove all steam /moisture from room
