Hi Guys,

Looking for some advise if possible.
So we have been looking for a roofer to quote and hopefully repair a failing mortar from a previous repair in the verges of our property. I've added the pictures below. Only one side of the property has failed. The house is weathers more from this side.
First roofer- never came back to us,
Second never came back after asking for a scaffolding company to visit and quote. Never heard back from him.
Third wouldn't answer the phone and would only quote by message/watsapp etc
Fourth came but was unsure about his cost and method and just wanted to research before going back to him..

He stated to point the verges it would be £1200-£1500. We know scaffolding is required to be fair as its approximately 10m at highest point .
Then stated instead a linear dry verge could be installed within a few hours and screwed to the soffit. One section of channel, I've researched about these but was unsure if these could be retrofitted to an existing tiled roof? The quote was also £500+ off ladders.

Can any experienced roofers advised, is this good practice?

Any help would be appreciated guys.

Reuben

Just don’t use whoever did the fascias. My word the detail over the chimney. :(
Putting Hollow soffit, ogee cappit and white square gutter on a nice old house like that is like putting a set of alloys and a spoiler on a 1920’s vintage car.
