    Re-felting garage roof

    Re-felting garage roof 2nd Mar 06 at 5:33 PM
    People who lived here before me clearly had a love of ivy, and allowed the garage roof to be covered in the stuff. I noticed patches of wet in the boards in the garage recently. On further investigation, and pulling the ivy off it, it appears the lovely stuff has actually grown through the felt, and into the garage!!! (Why people insist on covering their walls with this evil stuff is beyond me) So it needs refelting, and probably reboarding under the felt as well to be honest. How much am I looking at? I'm hoping not too much, but a mate of mine had a kitchen extension leak and had a refelt, slightly smaller than my garage, but cost 700 notes. It's a single garage by the way. Is there any things to ask when I eventually get a quote?
    Thanks in advance.

    (Incidentally, why do people put shingle stuff on top of the felt? The ivy's leaves had decomposed leaving a nice soil like substance mixed in with this stuff on the roof! Along with the odd bit of cat s**t!!)
