Some of the mortar between each ridge tile on our gabled roof is missing. Viewed from the ground the tiles do not appear to be loosened & the loft appears watertight but I was wondering is this a job, re-mortaring between the tiles, that needs doing sooner than later please?
Hi polypody, Unless the ridges are loose or you have water ingress I would suggest you leave well alone. Making good would involve raking out loose mortar, soaking the joints and then repointing. Regards. S
