Both of us have flollopped on the sofa, stuffed to the gills with Omelette Arnold Bennett

A bricklayer will be able to take out the 'spalled' bricks and replace them.  It's a skilled job but won't take him long.

Just paint what's left of the roof with old fashioned tar varnish - it won't dry for ages - it won't wash out or wash off - you'll catch them sticky handed
