I am looking to get a new roof, I own a detached property (1928) will a unfelted slate roof. The slates read made in France on the back, not sure if they are worth keeping to re-use, or buy new slate. 90% of the roof is intact, however we need to replace the guttering, new lead valleys, We also have a leak coming in around, and I suspect one of the main beams now has rot as a result. we are keeping an eye on the leak and trying to keep the area dry, we will need scaffolding etc, what sort of ball park figure should I be looking for?
