AROUND THE HOME
Bad vibrations? What your brakes are telling you
Cruising down the freeway, you touch your car brakes and feel a vibration or wobble. One possible reason is that the rotors have become twisted or warped. Brakes get seriously hot, and the metal will easily warp, especially if you’re guilty of being heavy on the brakes. To help your brakes last longer, try being gentler on the brakes. If the vibration is too annoying, then it’s probably time for a brake check-up with your local mechanic
What’s the point? The low down on repointing tiled roofs
Being a tiled roof is hard work. The sun beats down on you, you get rained on and even sometimes hail, plus the winds. Little wonder the mortar can begin to crack after a while. The ridge tiles are the first line of defence against water entering the home, so when the mortar begins to crack and crumble after many years, it’s time to act. Your local tiled roof specialist can inspect your tiled roof and repoint your ridgecapping if required.
