Roof pointing and bedding are essential parts of a roof’s structure and require regular maintenance to ensure your house stays in top condition.Roof bedding is a cement mortar that holds the roof tiles in place. Over time, the bedding is subjected to natural wear. Loose tiles are a common sign that the roof needs to be re-bedded. If the bedding is not maintained, it may crack or fall away and cause damp and water leakage’s.


A chimney is exposed to the elements and is particularly vulnerable  to high winds. If gaps in the mortar of the chimney are starting to appear then it is probably time to get it inspected. At the extreme the chimney can collapse so don’t ignore signs of cracks. Chimneys can be close to the edge of a hip roof or in the middle of the roof on the ridge.
