    Can you please advise on how I can tidy this up please? It's how the builders left it and I have been meaning to revisit it.

    Two options come to mind:
    1. fascia boards
    2. eve covers

    The problem is that the slope isn't straight. Hence a fascia board may have a gap in places. Hope that makes sense and look forward to your advice.

    What's wrong with it? It looks finished.

    Probably just organise a BBQ or party or something just to give it closure.

    The under cloak is shoddy as is the pointing under it.

    To make it tidy the verge needs to come off, brick work needs cutting to a true line.
    New under cloak bedded and tiles refitted. and pointed neatly.
    ..

    Or you can try and forget it

    This is the issue:
    [​IMG]

    I've ignored it for over a year but would like to tidy (hide?) the mortar bead as it seems unsightly and not finished correctly, I thought?

    I will struggle with the skills required for @datarebal suggestion but appreciate that would be the proper way to deal with it.

    I was wondering if I could use a fascia of some description (note that the slope isn't perfectly straight) or perhaps verge caps which extend out over the mortar. Hope this makes sense and thanks in advance.

    it looks like you may have enough tile overhang to fix a plastic fascia to the wall after scribing the op edge to follow the undercloak

    There is definitely enough overhang but I thenneed to tie it in with the fascia on the front side and finish off the corner. That could be tricky.

    Can I not get away with verge caps in this situation?

    The corner should be simple.. There is a plastic guy on here who might be able to confirm ...

    I'm concerned that if the fascia board sits too proud it will be higher that the fascia returning back from the fascia run at the front.

    You will make it look worse with some sort of frankenverge mess trying to add a bargeboard to a verge that is not designed for one, and that's without the fact of what a piece of white fascia looks like with a non parallel and wavy top edge - 10x as visible than it is now. Then the water staining from lack of drip ...

    In what world does a piece of plastic look better than a wet verge?
