I had a full re-roof using reclaimed slates on my Victorian house, it was completed just over 2 weeks ago. I have agreed for the scaffolding to stay up so I can sort out new guttering and noticed that there are some cracks appearing along the edges (not sure what this is called) in what I think is cement (again not sure what material is used here)?
Hi rich05uk You have what is called a mortared verge and it is quite normal for cracks to appear because the mortar shrinks. May be worth seeing if a continuous verge capping can be fitted to cover the edge. Regards S
