  3. There are a few components to this topic . One resource I found that successfully combines these is the Ewans energy roadmap (check it out on google) definately the most helpful guide that I've seen. look at the interesting info .

  4. if you want to know how to make some of your DIY kinds of stuff yourself, just go to an Avasva website. There you'll find your answers 🙂

  5. That roof will need new tiles within 10 years it's got the old 1f membrane with is not used any more the ridges look like they have been buttered up on the overs to stop water getting in, bad idea unless you don't mind paying a massive bill for removal/re fit when you roof is leaking unless you have a new roof of course
    Done buy roofers using correct equipment and defiantly not ones wearing trainers and joggers working for a solar panel company
