Independent CPR Part 35 report for court on poor workmanship to a Loughborough roof by rogue traders.
In this case a rouge trader could not find the cause of a small roof leak and after several visits to the property advised the owner that the battens were rotten and that it would need to be recovered at a cost of £4000.00. The trader then only recovered one face of the roof but charged for two. One the face of the roof he did recover he did not carry out any work to the actually area of the roof that was causing the leak. The recovering was so badly done that the roof will have to be recovered again. The actual cause of the leak was where the small front gable over the bedroom window joins the main roof and could have been repaired at a cost of a couple of hundred pounds. The two valley liners that run either side of the gable did not meet at the apex and when a mortar joint between the covering tile and main roof had fractured water was able to enter.

Here's what £700.00 of bathroom tiling looks like. This was the worst tiling job that our Lougborough RICS Expert Witness Surveyors had ever seen! There was nothing good that could be said about it. All will have to be scrapped. Failure on such jobs are invariable caued by failure to think for a few minutes before starting work and failure to use simple tools such as a tape measure, square, level plumb line or spacers. If engaging any contractor start to worry at early stage if they rush into the job and do not make frequent use of the simple tools mentioned above. A good building or construction job always starts with good planning which almost always involves ten minutes with the tape measure!
Here our Loughborough surveyors surveyed roof that was leaking after being recovered and having the chimneys rebuilt. The leaks were traced to poor detailing of the metalwork that surrounds the chimneys and roof lights and failure to secure the lining sheet.
