Roofing & Insulation

Keeping a house weatherproof and in good condition is an ongoing task. Under constant attack from a combination of heat, cold, wind, and rain, it is vital that the right protection is in place to keep the elements at bay. This book gives guidance on a wide range of roofing and weatherproofing jobs, as well as home insulation—all important in keeping problems, and the bill, to a minimum. Topics covered include replacing tiles, slates, and repairing flashings; repairing chimney stacks, woodwork, gutters, and downpipes; sealing window frames and repairing brickwork; roof, loft, and wall insulation; and double glazing and soundproofing.
