This was a classic case of home DIY gone wrong. The house had been repossessed and was owned by the banks. We were asked to take a look at the property to ascertain the work required to make sure the house was safe and ready for sale.
A dorma roofs had been fitted in the roof, but some of the supporting roof timbers had been cut away to make room for this, which could potentially see the roof collapse when under stress. This was all done without prior planning consent, and very little knowledge of construction.
We were asked to rectify the problem immediately, and set about the task of removing the dorma roofs and installing a new roof, replacing roof timbers and tiles. The project was handled by one of our very experienced project managers and completed on time and within budget.
