Flashing

Thankfully not that kind of flashing, wouldn't want to frighten the birds away!

We've got a Victorian property (18 months in...), the end roof above the kitchen/bathroom joins to the lower back bedroom wall. It hasn't got any flashing, but the mortar's now aged sufficiently to start leaking so we have a bucket in the kitchen, not a good look. We also have a loose bit of flashing on a chimney breast to be sorted.

Have any of you had flashing repair work done, new flashing installed? What kind of prices were you quoted? Our first one in is ca £260; we don't know if this is reasonable, got peeps coming out Thurs/Fri to have look/quote.

Thank you grin

Impossible to say without knowing how big the area is but £260 sounds reasonable to me especially if they are using lead.

Have you tried mybuilder.com?

Thank you, I've just posted on mybuilder.com to see if we get any other feedback. Only the one quote thus far (as above), someone else was due to visit last night but came Weds when we were out, then was meant to pitch up this morn but no sight... they sound disorganised! Others aren't calling back. Just want the ca £260 against a few others for peace of mind.
