Roofing/Siding Skillset

Roofing

  • removing or repairing broken tiles or slates (stripping)
  • checking that the roof timbers are sound
  • measuring and cutting materials to the correct size and shape
  • recovering the roof – laying strips of felt onto timbers, then re-fitting rows (courses) of tiles or slates
  • cutting and fitting lead flashings around chimney stacks and adjoining walls
  • sealing roof joints with mortar, for example on ridges and hips to make jobs watertight

Siding

Siding gives you a great way to add color and definition to your house. There are lots of options these days to help you create the perfect fa├žade and you want to choose carefully. While aesthetics are always important, you also want to consider the material’s durability, ability to resist water, ease of installation and versatility.
