    Default Any scaffolders On here

    What a nightmare of a day I've had. With all this heavy rain we've been having here I've noticed our bathroom ceiling has been raining in. Been off today so got the ladder off me van and went up there thinking it's just a case of faulty/defective guttering but it appears the water is driving under the guttering and behind the brickwork, anyway I've made a temp repair but I'm going to need better access in the summer so I can remove the guttering. Just after an idea on price to have scaffolding put up for a few days. I know it's hard to say without seeing it but the tower if you like would probably be about 4 or 5 meters wide and usual terraced house height ( whatever that us ha) and give me a working platform at gutter height. Any ideas please thanks guys. Rob

    Should be covered by your home insurance policy

    The building age should not come into it, the issue is water penetration and subsequent damage
    Check the policy terms
    Sadly the excess for water damage is typically higher, but not as high as flooding

    I have several properties and claimed numerous times for water ingress issues on the oldest (built 1906) and never had any issues

    True that age isn't necessarilly a factor, but they don't cover wear and tear or lack of maintenance, it's got to be something broken that's the cause of the problem - if your roof needs replacing because it's old then they won't pay - any more than when you buy a new Insignia and ask them for new tyres under the manufacturers warranty because your existing ones have worn out.

    Depends on the policy provider
    As above, I've never had any problems

    The latest was for a failed guttering that had caused water ingress (very similar to OP)
    The guttering was new in about 1985, along with the roof
    The entire cause and effect was covered, even though you could argue that this was wear and tear the insurance company agreed to claim after three days, work commenced six weeks later and was completed a further three weeks later
