Asbestos Garage?

Roofing on The Bounty

Thinking about one of the very first contracts carried out by Mayfield Roofing, back in 1984
it was time to write a blog post about it,

You can read the full story on our main website:  Mayfield Roofing

It was refurbishing house roof for a lovely lady, who lived alone,
in the leafy suburbs of Birmingham.

The contract was refurbishing house roof for her and replace the gutters and fascias,
amongst other things which I can no longer remember.

Now if Mayfield Roofing are in the business of refurbishing house roof in
South Birmingham you may be wondering about my title;

Roofing on the Bounty

It is all about a hero who was much maligned as very a cruel man
by the press and Hollywood

Asbestos Garage Roof? Will it kill me?


Asbestos Garage Roof?
Is it going to kill my children?

This ridiculous statement is from a telephone call recently.  A worried mother told me she had only just realised her Garage Roofing Sheets were so called “Asbestos Sheets!”  

Unfortunately it is a sign of our times that she belived much of the hype and hysteria in our media concerning the “A” word.  

She was under the impreassion that her children only had to see an Asbestos Garage Roof and they would contract a very deadly disease the following week?

I reassured her that the greatest danger the garage roofing sheets posed for her children was the risk of falling through if they climbed onto the asbestos garage roof.

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

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!

Old Wriggly Cement Roofs?

There was a time when it was fashionable to fit wriggly cement asbestos sheets to the roofs of sheds, out buildings and garages.
This was mainly because it was just about the cheapest covering that was available.
It looked unsightly when it was new and soon deteriorated to become an eyesore.

So what do you do, if you have one of these roofs now?

There are a few options open to you

You can replace it with modern plastic coated steel.

Probably the most cost effective solution is to overclad it with steel sheets
