Have been working on a Farmhouse which is at least 100 years old, I am replacing the vertical tiles which have been slipping for many years. The timber structure behind the tiles needed some minor repairs when exposed. I had to put in new plywood soffit boards for the tiles to fit into and keep everything tight and neat.
On closer inspection the timber barge boards had perished in places so these needed to be taken down and replaced like for like being a grade II listed building. Too much neglect on the barge boards had resulted in more work to get it back in good order, especially as it is a decorative barge board. This is an ongoing work in progress and images will be available very soon.
