well yes and no, my tenants are in my opinion being somewhat obstructive because they are home office covid victims and cannot accept noise !n terms of time for scaffold, surely if you are getting a price for the job it does not matter?
only insulation ? you mean like a warm roof, surely they are covered to at least replace battens felt slates leadwork etc ?Just to confirm the structural work is not covered by a competent person scheme.
The structural work requires B regs, however the competent person scheme does not cover structural work so you will need to appoint B control for this.only insulation ? you mean like a warm roof, surely they are covered to at least replace battens felt slates leadwork etc ?
No I mean a slate roof with decent purlins in a caved in shape. The purlins would have been fine if the struts were still there..do you mean they are undersized or oversized and by shape you mean bowed ?
Only one of the 4 purlins is showing signs of bowing (now cracked). In the roof space originally there were no struts only thin timbers which hung the original thin ceiling joists to the rafters.The purlins would have been fine if the struts were still there
unfortunately i did not take more pics of the roof assembly, but trust me there are 2 purlins per pitch, i cannot readily get more pics as i am in Germany and the house is not !there's only evidence for one per side in the pics so far
on the left (rear) pitch i took out the complete chimney to floor level. There is a concrete lintel supporting the new brick that was inserted to bring the inner skin up to roof level and the roof was patched over.pockets have been worked on since 1900.
Both chimney breasts are entirely in my building, rear is now removed front untouched. There is a picture on pg.1 which shows my front stack, that is under my neighbours entrance hall his chimney is on the other sideIs the loft chimney breast lower down the party wall?
