Hi all

The roof of the 2 bedroom mid-terrace I rent out in Outer London is leaking and I have obtained quotes from three Checkatrade companies for repair work.   However I am not technically well versed in roofing nomenclature so I am not sure of how different the work being offered is, or which quote is the best in terms of value for money.  Photos of the damage are linked and any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
