||This is a list of jobs carried out on the annual service.|
||Water Ingress Report (See below for an explanation)|
||The cost of the service. Everything was okay, apart from the water ingress report.|
Firstly, I think I have to mention the weather conditions on the day and the previous ones leading upto it, we had a lot of rain and therefore it was very humid, so when I saw that a lot of the readings were around 15, I was not particulary worried. There are higher readings which caught my attention: but it's nothing too serious.
23% on the roof, this is the bathroom skylight and I decided to reseal it at the weekend and there were two drops of water on the inner frame when I removed it, no damp wood , so it must have only been a recent problem. (14% on the roof, was the new heki rooflight I fitted in the last year, good job!).
20% on the nearside door frame. With this I removed the old sealant down that edge and ran a bead of seamseal down it. I have previously resealed the top with Sikaflex 512 Caravan. I can see a future project; removing and resealing the door!
22%, 19% on the rear offside, on inspecting the rear grab handles they only had some silicone around them, I resealed them both with strip mastic.
With the other readings, I think it is just a matter of resealing all the rails, I'm going to be busy!
