    Just been grinding away the joints on my chimney stack before repointing

    There are some horrible fern type roots groing and attacking the motar joints - so it definately
    needs repointing for sure - just come down now and got me thinking what sort of cement is in the bricks

    Its looks like cement in places but in other places its quite white especially when gound away

    Would it be lime in a 1930s semi???

    Might get some whit vinegar on the joints in the attic!

    I'm more concerned on how you are up on the roof? Scaffolding?
