I'm looking to buy a new house that needs a lot of work doing (almost a complete renovation job, rewiring, plumbing, damp proofing etc). On the last visit I went up into the loft to see what work needed doing, and if the roof needed replacing or if repairs were possible instead.
I've uploaded pictures here... http://imgur.com/a/QFvqg which will hopefully give you an idea of what state it's in currently.
I know there's obviously a poor work gone on here in the past, but I'm just wondering if it's repairable without getting a whole new roof, and how big of a job this would be.
Other information that might be of use:
1) Slight sag in the roof where all 4 colours meet (on the diagram in my pictures) above 'bedroom 1'.
2) I don't have pictures of the area above 'bedroom 2' due to access and safety concerns! So that to be ignored (if possible).
3) I notice there's a bow and split in the larger beam. Is it possible to secure this with a metal plate instead of replacing?
Let me know if any other information is needed and I'll add it as soon as possible.
