    I have a single storey extension to the side of my house which houses the garage and utility room. I have recently noticed a water leak in the ceiling of the utility room (water dripping down through light fitting). Have had a look at the roof and it seems the wooden facia along the back of the utility room has roted slightly where it buts upto the main house wall. The felt that would normally wrap around the edge of the roof onto the fascia is therefore affected.

    I had a roofing contractor come to have a look and he reccommends replacing the fascia and laying new felt across the width of the room (approx 6m by 2m). He quoted £300.

    Does this sound like good advice and a resonable quote?

    Thank you.

    it does sound like a good quote to me aswell but be very aware that if an area of the original felt has now become damage then this would be fine but if the original felt is now stating to become aged and starting to crack and fail then to be honest it might not be too long before your having another patch done i would get him to check the whole roof and see what he thinks and also as a plus note i would ask a seperate roofing contractor to come and have a look and see what he thinks but try to pick one from a different area as us roofers do tend to no each other and tend to talk to each other quite alot. any further help you need then give me a shout
