    foam insulation residue on roof tiles - still considered fire risk? remove residue?

    Our lender's surveyor asked us to remove the rigid foam insulation from loft (applied by previous owners 12+ years ago) as the lender won't lend due to fire risk. The foam is directly on top of the roof tiles (with no membrane/material underneath). Been a nightmare as it took weeks for contractors to remove the residue from the loft (from cutting and scraping it off). Upon re-inspection the surveyor is still not satisfied with the removal as there is residue of the foam left (stuck to roof tiles). Can this residue still be considered fire-risk? Is the surveyor being unreasonable? Any advise please on how best to remove it if possible? Looked into dry ice blasting but there is a risk of it dislodging and damaging the roof tiles (especially as some tiles with hairline cracks already)

    How did you get a mortgage when you bought the place if there was already foam installed?
    To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.
