Stables Getting Its TLC – Day 4

Another good day on the Stables Block 
but as the project is still on-going it has
not apeared on our main website yet 

http://Mayfield-Roofing.co.uk

You may recall what the front of the barn looked like

The timbers were rotted at the ends and therefore
had to all be replaced

Not very photogenic I am afraid and the images
do not tell the whole story of the amount of work
that went into this part of the transformation

However, you must agree that the finished section
was worth all the hard work that went in to it:

 Once the project is complete, the whole story
will be told on out main website

Mayfield Roofing

That is where you can peruse other completed projects

Asbestos Roof Leaks – What Can I Do?

In our main website, www.Mayfield-Roofing.co.uk we recently 
published the details of how we transformed an old garage.

Th garage had an asbestos sheeted roof that was leaking in a few areas
Over the years, many attempts had been made to stop the leaks
with very little success 

Here is a very short video of how we managed the transformation:

Over the last few weeks, several of our contracts have involved
rebedding loose Bonnet Tiles that covered the “Hips” of a roof

If you want to catch up on what Mayfield Roofing have been up to lately
just follow this link to our main website: Mayfield Roofing

It never ceases to annoy me to see so many roofs with the problem
of loose, hip and ridge tiles, particularly on recently built properties.

So many modern houses, costing hundreds of thousands, are flawed for
the sake of one extra bag of cement, that costs less than a fiver!

Here is one example:

P3030129

Don’t those hip Bonnet tiles look miserable?

The cement is all loose; many Bonnets have been dislodged and
there may also be leakage into the structure.  Any leakage will be
causing damage, even though it may not always be apparent
inside the building.

Here is a side view of the same hip:

P3030134

So, What is the answer?

The old Bonnet Tiles must be lifted off, cleaned of old mortar and
set to one side for reuse.

The hip section must then be rebuilt in the correct manner

Each Bonnet Tile has to be bedded in new mortar and

P3030136

Each Bonnet is then mechanically fixed with a galvanised nail,

P3030137

The next Bonnet is then positioned properly, bedded correctly
with adequate mortar, a bit like laying bricks to build a wall

P3030138

Proceed then, laying each Bonnet in turn

P3030141

When the run is finished, go back over the entire ridge
and face up the cement to leave a neat tidy finish

P3030142

Compare these images of the finished job with
what it looked like before we started

Hip; Hip; Hooray – Are Your Ridge Tiles Happy?

On a lighter note;

Are you old enough to remember those tedious school quiz shows on TV?

“Top Of The Form” is one that comes to my mind where each team had
to praise their opponents with mantras like “Hip; Hip Hooray”

In my last year at school, I was actually picked to represent my school
in one of these fiascos!

Luckily, there was a series of Power Cuts (Outages) when
‘My Show’ was broadcast, so hardly anyone saw it
and I am spared the ridicule on YouTube!
