Damaged Sarking
 
I have just purchased a new house (Built 1935ish) and found the sarking badly damaged and insulation very minimal.

I was only expecting to do thew insulation but now think I may have to add new sarking. Is this possible without removing the roof tiles? Is it necessary at all?

That's a new word for me, what is "sarking"? Where are you?

Question: "Do you like Kipling?"
Answer: "I don't know, I've never Kippled"

Sarking
A water-resistant membrane placed beneath roof tiles to collect and discharge water.


Yes, you do need to remove all the tiles to do the job correctly.

Sarking in a waterproof layer that sits below roofing tiles.
