Summer is quickly approaching. This also means that storm season isn’t far off. It’s essential to check your roof is in top condition to ensure that it is well prepared to better withstand the incoming weather. Roof repointing is one aspect of general house maintenance that is very important to keep up with to increase both the safety and value of your home.
WHAT IS REPOINTING?
On tiled roofs there are triangular shaped tiles that sit where two roof areas intersect. These tiles are most commonly known as ridge capping, but they can also be called ridge tiles or capping tiles. The ridge capping is secured to the roof with two methods, roof bedding and pointing. Roof bedding is a mixture of sand and cement/ mortar that adheres the ridge capping. Then a layer of flexible pointing material is put over the roof bedding to ensure that your roof tiles and ridge tiles are kept securely in place.
WHY IS ROOF REPOINTING IMPORTANT?
Roof repointing is essential to the structural integrity of your roof. Ridge capping acts as a seal preventing water, moisture, and dust from coming through your roof. The repointing materials expand and contract to accommodate to different weather conditions and the seasons.
Signs of damaged ridge capping can include roof leaks, light coming into your roof space, mould and mildew, missing tiles, cracked and broken tiles.
