Concerned about the condition of the chimney stacks at her property in Doncaster, Mrs Bettersworth contacted DPR Roofing Barnsley to come and investigate.

A roofer from DPR attended the property and completed a thorough roof survey which revealed that new ventilation cowls were needed and the chimney stacks pointing and mortar were defective, causing water penetration.

In order to rectify the problem DPR firstly erected access equipment to the chimney and fit a gas cowl and a ventilation cowl to each chimney pot on both chimney stacks. They then removed the old mortar flaunching, raked out the pointing to the chimney stack and cleaned down the whole area with fresh water.

The roofers then reflaunched the chimney stack in quality roofing grade mortar and repointed the chimney stack back to a tooled finish. DPR completed the project by removing all resultant rubble from the site.
