DPR were recently called out to inspect the roof of a property in Conisbrough, Doncaster. Upon inspection the roof was found to have defective valley and verge pointing to all elevations and the majority of the roofs ridge tiles were loose. These defects not only have the potential to allow water penetration into the property but also carry the risk of a ridge tile becoming dislodged and causing damage to surrounding property or vehicles.

In order to repair ridge tiles the roofers lifted and removed all of the original mortar beds to the ridge tiles and refit the lifted ridge tiles to a roofing grade mortar and pointed off.

The roofers then raked out all of the loose and defective pointing on the verges and the valleys applied an SBR bonding compound and repointed in a quality roofing grade mortar.
