    Original Condition.
    Notice the bow in the roof line at the ridge. This is an indicator of moisture in the attic, which leads to rotting structural timber and roof sag.
  12. Managing Director
    Original Condition.
    Roof was severely leaking and had rotted tarps which had torn in heavy winds.
