    "It depends on the size of the property for scaffolding,
    And weather the ridges need replacing if any are broken or break,
    On top of two mans day rate for 1 day"

    "The work you require costs roughly around £250 pound because it would take two people in my opinion without scaffolding, using a hook ladder would be the cheapest way. The breakdown of the work is:
    Roofer £160
    Labouerer £80
    Sand and cement £10"

    "There’s actually a couple of answers,
    It’s enough to be classed as a short days work so up to £200 plus a mate to pass bucket of mortar if needed, the mortar cost is minimal,
    This job is v frowned upon nowadays by professionals as it’s a far better job to remove the lot and renew the mortar bed properly and guarantee the job,
    Or remove the lot and fix back on a dry ridge system,
    I actually saw a couple guys ‘buttering up some hips’ last week they charged the elderly couple £500 for a couple hours.

    "Roughly a days work
    Sounds like need scaffolding which price of that depends on size of it. Normally looking around 500-1200 for the labour materials ridges and scaffold."

    "To scrape out all the old mortar and provide all the materials to repoint the ridge tiles , I’d say around the 1000 mark no more no less."
