    How high are they?

    I did plenty of repointing of old brickwork in a previous life in England.

    Yep I still do repointing, it all depends on the access of the job, height, scaffold etc..

    Sounds as thought you will need scaffold then.

    I can and come and have a look if you are interested.
    Maybe start by getting some quotes off scaffolding mobs.

    Scaffold will be the biggest killer as far as cost goes.

    Al .You will need scaffold. Also we are going to leave the existing old tin roof on the house and repalce it when the chimney work is done.
