Hi and welcome to C & A Propertycare
The company is a family run business operated by Alan and Colin - we undertake all types of work on property whether it be a small garden wall or a large 2 storey extension.
We also carry out other work such as Re-pointing, wall ties, brick replacement and new build houses. We also install new flat roof rubber systems with a 50 year guarantee. We also have a window and door fitting service and have a wide choice of the very latest composite doors
All our work is fully guaranteed and PL insured. My brother and I have had over 30 years experience as builders and other works and probably undertaken most types of jobs and scenarios. We will always provide a free and friendly no obligation advice and quotations before we start any work.
Everything will be put in writing detailing what will be done and at what the cost will be to you the client. All work will be executed in a timely manner and to a very high standard.
Colin and Alan started to work in construction and building from leaving school. We have worked together over the years and we have also carried out work as individuals.
It was a wise decision to join forces a few years ago and form C & A Propertycare whereby we could combine both our skills and experience together to provide a top quality service to our clients.
The skills and expertise we have developed over time is vast and there are not many building or home improvement tasks that we haven't tackled such as
Extensions (any size)
Windows - doors - soffits and facias etc.
Flat roofing (Rubber systems only)
New builds - houses, Industrial units etc.
Re-pointing - brick replacement - wall ties - damp coursing - lintel replacement.
Landscaping works generally hard landscaping though.
Flagging paving generaly Indian stone etc.
As you can see the list is extensive and we have many satisfied customers who can vouch for our top class work.
If any builder or bricklayer says they will build on top of shingles then i would be very wary of their competency and trade experience. shingles are the roof covering that will protect the main roof from the elements such as wind, water, sun and snow etc.it isn't a solid base or foundation for building off. hope that helps..
Have you considered putting a lightweight slated roof instead of lead or other materials. there is every chance your main roof is slated so the canopy should blend in nicely with a used slate. i am assuming it's only a smallish canopy so not many slates would be required but you would require some timber work to support the slate roofing etc. hope that helps.
its more than likely that your frames need replacing because the new double glazing these days create a very tight seal against air and moisture entering in and around the unit which could be causing your misty windows.
another problem is that some fitters will use silicone products to secure the glazing to the frames and this could cause a chemical reaction between the sealed unit and silicones again causing the glazed unit to fail and cause misting. and finally condensation could be an issue in your property in terms of ventilation and insulation and especially if windows that are misting are in the kitchen or bathroom or even if you dry cloths on radiators etc.
hope that helps

i am not sure what agreement you had in place with your building contractor but if you did have a contract then there should be a term and condition within the contract which explains what your recourse is for his or disappearance. i am not entirely sure whether you can sell his equipment legally or not so i would seek an opinion from a solicitor regarding that. or if you are still communicating with the builder then why not come to some amicable arrangement to remove his rubbish for the sale of his equipment but get his acceptance first.
hope this helps
