The concrete tiles on the front will be heavy i expect there lighter these days but people used to get the concrete tiles put on there properties as they were cheaper than slate or clay tiles but ended up with bowing roofs as the roof was never built to take the weight.
I'm just going to replace the tiles with some black Corrugated Bitumen Sheet and put up some new guttering. It should be pretty straight forward and imagine stripping off the old tiles will be the biggest job.

A bit off progress today I managed to replace the tiled section of the roof.

These just lifted of without any persuasion at all !


All stripped off



And the job almost finished. The the boards and tiles are just to add a little weight to stop the expanding foam from lifting the ridge pieces.

I only had hammerite smoothrite black paint so thought i'd try that - after 2 coats it looks great, worst part was masking up straight to paint inbetween

More firms out there I'm sure its just kingspan seams to have become much as hoover has become the deficit word for vacuum cleaners.

Kingspan/celotex/recticel all have the same insulation rating, so I'd go with whatever is cheaper unless anyone says that Kingspan is a lot better to cut or work with.

What thickness insulation did you use for the roof and also what thickness ply did you use for the walls ?
