Hi,

My 20 x 18 foot garage needs the old felt, underlay, and boards stripping off and one length of guttering replaced. Then, one contractor told me, it all must be replaced with new material. The new felt would be torchon, if I've got the name right.

He has quoted £5400 for the complete job, including rubbish removal and guarantee. H e said it would take 4 to 5
days in all for himself and his workers. (Why has this print gone small?)

Would anyone care to advise me if this seems a reasonable amoount, please

Sounds very expensive to me but then again I’m not a roofer.

Probably a lot of variables on your location etc as well. Perhaps not bad in London but expensive to a Northenr like me....

Thanks guys. I'm in Shropshire where things are supposed to be cheaper. I'll carry on getting quotes and will let you know how I get on.
