    Hi all,

    Been quoted £1,100 to replace and repoint the ridge and hip tiles on my 1930s semi detached. Don't think it's been touched in nearly 100 years so starting to look a bit crumbly.
    Job would take one day plus maybe some tidying up on second day. No scaffolding required.

    The whole house is about 6m x 6m, very shallow roof. Easy ladder access to front and side, rear access is over a flat roof extension.

    Live in South East, near Watford.

    Does this sound like a reasonable quote?

    Cheers!

    For the South East I think that sounds reasonable

    Cheers guys.

    Yep sorry I was mis-using terms in my first post.

    The quote is for removing and re-bedding all the existing hip and ridge tiles, so should be a proper job, not just re-pointing (which I hear is worthless).
