About this Webinar
John Gilbert, our conservation architecture specialist, provides a 101 session on repairing roofs, covering slating and tilework, leadwork and gutters. At the end of this session you’ll have a good idea of how to tell which roof repairs are likely to be your top priority, be able to ask intelligent questions of roofers and be able to tell a good repair quote from an indifferent one.

John is joined by Graeme Millar of Roofing Contractors Bain and Irvine to talk about slating and tiling issues and David Gibbon MRICS MCABE: Conservation Accredited Building Surveyor at GLM.
