Roofing on The Bounty

Thinking about the very first contract 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.

In reality, if you treat your asbestos garage roof with respect and common sense it is not a danger to you or anyone else.

Here is a very short video with a few ideas; what to do with your Asbestos Garage Roof

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:

 

Don’t forget, if you would like to know more, the full story is on 
our main website, 

www.Mayfield-Roofing.co.uk 

 

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!

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
