On chimneys check that chimney pots and the mortar, which is the flaunching
, around their bases are sound.
Works includes repairing timber roof trusses and replacing corrigated roof, clearing, pointing and flaunching
masonry walls, replacing and concrete floor slab and replacing a number of windows.
Also, check for any damage to chimney pots - including the flaunching
, which secures the pot to the chimney stack, since bad weather can cause this to crack.
