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

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!

Stable Block TLC – Final Day

If you have been following the story of the refurbishment of
the Stable Block that needed some TLC,
Here is the final part of our tail:

There has been a few days delay because heavy rain made
the meadow waterlogged and we could not get our vehicles close
to the project.

As usual, this and other projects are described in more detail on
our main blog http://Mayfield-Roofing.co.uk

You may recall, the shed at the end of the stables had the
wooden doors fitted at our last visit, well now, we have also
sheeted in the remaining front section

P2240144

The brickwork to the front of the building has now been repointed
completely so it is stronger and totally weather proof

Stablespointing

The windows have been glazed with 6mm clear Polycarbonate sheet
this makes it both vandle proof and secure

P2240141
P2240134

so there you have it, the final project finished

SnowGuards Fitted Above a Conservatory

If you are having a Conservatory fitted, it is always a good idea
to fit Snow Guards to your roof first

To fit them later can be very expensive

If you do not fit them at all, your Conservatory may be damaged by snow 
or tiles and other debris falling from your roof

On our blog http://RoofsR.us we report on one such project
in the beautifully picturesque English Cotswolds 

 

You can read the whole story here:
