demolishing the very solid roof terrace
These rods, that were installed to strengthen
my roof terrace, look pretty healthy to me.
Some have the thinest coating of rust after
more than 50 years buried in concrete.
They are 14mm thick and my builders are
having a hell of a time trying to demolish
the roof terrace. Whilst my neighbours have
to suffer the noise and vibrations.
So it appears I'm paying a fortune and have a
month added to my schedule to rip out a
roof that was perfectly good and sturdy.
All thanks to a civil engineer who deemed the
roof unsafe. I doubt a bomb would have
I will never in my life consult one of those
nurds again, and never would I recommend
anyone to consult a civil engineer.
I now suspect they work on commission from
the roofing companies.
