Felt roof on a shed
Lincolnshire, United Kingdom
Please can anybody tell me how long the felt on a garden shed should last. I bought a chalet four and a half years ago from a well known local firm and in the Spring it started crumbling and now has holes at ridge and eaves levels. The proprietor of the company which sold and erected the chalet is making (and not keeping) promises to send someone to look at it "for a quote" and I have the impression that he thinks I shall just give up on this. I would like him to either fix it for half the normal price or share the cost of someone else doing it.
This is the chalet which appears in my latest photos. I shall put my complaint in writing if I can find out what is the reasonable life expectancy of a felt roof.
Incidentally, my neighbour installed a shed at the same time and the roof on his is still good.
Thank you in advance.
