Repairing our roof
We are looking to have the roof of our stone farmhouse repaired. It is actually quite sound in most respects, but it is subject to tile slippage in high winds so leaks do pop up. We thought that all that was really needed was to secure the ridge tiles etc to prevent movement. Has anyone had experience of this, and if so, did it work sufficiently and how much did it cost? So far we have had one quote, but they want to take all the tiles off, line the roof with corrugated plastic (sounds horrible and just plain wrong in a 500-year-old house!) and re-lay the existing tiles, which are in decent condition. For this we have been quoted E4150. My gut feeling is that this is very expensive but I have nothing to compare it to yet. We were imagining paying E1000 for someone with balls to go up there and glue a few tiles down, but are we being unrealistic?!
