I am loving my BISF home and want to look after it ! Can anyone advise me on a few things,
1) What is best to paint the frame, roof tubes and angle irons in the loft with? it is currently red oxide (which you cannot get any more) or what seems to be black gloss? both of which have come off in places and are showing signs of light corrosion, I was thinking of either a modern red oxide replacement or hammerite metal paint what do you suggest?
2) My roof was replaced prior to my purchase and is now sellotex foil backed polystyrene topped with sheets of tile effect aluminium which is really effective insulation but has no venting at the ridge, the only vents are in the soffit is this ok or should there be venting at the ridge?
3) Who do you use for building and contents insurance?
Does this website have a deal with a preferred supplier like my car club ?
