Roof in the Cotswolds











When we work at height on roofs we get a close up view of the condition of chimneys; these two pictures show a chimney in need of some re pointing/repair work. The thatch owner told me that the same chimney had been re pointed not that long ago but obviously not on the ‘blind side’-or the side not easily viewed from the ground.

We will always try and bring this to the attention of the thatch owner and it makes sense for any builder to utilise the scaffolding that we are working from to save on costs.
