Thursday saw me at work, Tim in Wrexham for some meetings, the roofers on our roof with our neighbour, Rory, down below supervising the job.
Here is a photograph of the repaired roof.
Tim has a couple of minor concerns about some gaps large enough for birds, and the lining up/join of a couple of tiles. The roof is over 150 years old, amazingly watertight with the timbers rot free. Luckily Rory had some spare tiles, and, although they haven't been able to keep the pattern exact, in that area of the roof it doesn't really matter.
What the experience has revealed is that some of the ridge tiles need to be re-seated. This weekend either Tim will be out buying the correct roof ladders ...... or perhaps we'll get the roofers back!
However, the main thing is that the hole is no more!
