Hi
I'm in the process of getting my roof replaced - old stone cottage in central algarve.
I've had a couple of builders look at it and one has suggested new eucalyptus beams plus canes plus insulation then new tiles.
The other has said new beams then a concrete roof system on top - this worries me a bit as won't we need to factor the extra load on the old stone walls?
Also does anyone have any experience on what price I should be prepared to pay? It's approx 60m2.
Thanks all

Thanks for all the feedback, as ever very useful.

I think the concrete idea may be a bit weighty on our old walls. One builder has suggested the traditional route like yours Verinia, which does sit more comfortably with me. Good to hear your advise re canes too as much as I like the look I have been warned about the dust problems. We have canes at the moment and the dust is quite bad.

Thanks again!
