Shed roof repair in Tremar

A leaking shed is a bit of a nuisance especially when the winter is fast approaching.

We were called to a property in Tremar near Liskeard to have a look at the roof of a typical 6 by 10 garden shed. We found that the existing felt was past its best and there were a few holes letting the water in. Luckily it had been noticed before the OSB board under the felt had started to rot.

Here's the old felt. Certainly in need of replacement.

We gave a price for this work, obtained the materials and returned a week later on a dry afternoon to complete the job.

All the wooden fascias were removed and the old felt taken off and bagged up for disposal. We pulled out all of the nails, swept the roof clean and trimmed back a bush which was rubbing on the back of the shed/roof. The shed was re-felted with a good quality roofing felt and all the joins were glued and nailed. Then we replaced all the fascia boards which had been nailed on upside down by the previous person so we corrected this at the same time.

The shed should give several more years service now.
