    hi all,

    I have had some work completed today on my roof from a trades man i found on my builder. They had good feedback generally and seemed well informed etc when discussing the job in hand however the quality of the workmanship (to my eyes ) is fairly shocking.

    i was quoted £700 ( a mornings work for two lads) to:

    - clean gutters front and rear
    - reline and seal the joint between two sections of gutters above the front bay window
    - re point ridge tiles
    - re point roof verge
    - repoint chimney

    the builder is happy with his work and says it is acceptable - i disagree. could i have some opinions to the quality of this workmanship? I feel like i could have repointed it better myself with my eyes shut. It doesnt look as though its been raked out, and it looks very likely to fail and fall out again. and I have absolutely no faith in the gutter 'repair... '

    Have you paid him?
    Did you get any other quotes and if so, how much?
    Have you checked the guttering to confirm it is not leaking?

    no havent paid yet but he is asking for payment tonight.

    it was the first quote i got (i know , i know...)

    I haven't been able to check the gutter to see if its working yet. Internally there was a big damp patch (hence getting it looked at) but that will take a while to dry out before i can assess the effectiveness of that repair.

    and gutter repair aside - the additional pointing is worthless isnt it?
