Pointing is an essential element of a roof’s structure. It consists of a layer of flexible pointing material that is placed over the roof bedding. It ensures that your roof tiles as well as the ridge capping are held securely in place. In addition, roof pointing acts as a roof seal against dust and water. With changing weather conditions, the pointing material expands and contracts. As such, it requires regular maintenance to stay in the best possible condition. If not properly maintained, older pointing can crack and deteriorate, causing roof leaks and further damage to your home. That is why it’s essential that every home owner needs to employ a reputable firm to carry out re-pointing on their roof. Ideally, this should be carried out at least once every ten years.
Roof re-pointing is a simple but effective roof repair that can give your home a facelift. Your roof is a main feature of your home and should be regularly maintained to improve the capital value of your property. In addition, you home will be safer due to the waterproof qualities of the latest pointing materials. Pointing is available in a variety of colours so you can select the best possible match for the colour of your roof tiles.
Roof re-pointing is definitely a job that should be left to the professionals. In fact, you need to ensure that you only hire licensed and qualified roofers, such as Brisbane Tile Roof Restorations.
Do you know how often your roof should be repointed? How about signs that there might be damage? Or what causes damage in the first place? Following we will answer these questions and give a quick overview guide of the repointing process.
On average, a roof repointing should be done once every ten years. Damage to your roof can be caused by a variety of things, from natural wear and tear to harsh weather conditions and even animals/ wildlife.
You may be able to visibly see loose tiles, broken cracked ridge tiles. You may also notice issues such roof leaks and water damage to your ceiling or walls. It’s important to get things fixed as soon as possible before a little problem becomes a huge problem.
Roof bedding and repointing can help to protect your home against water damage, flooding and mould. We have a thorough and in-depth repointing process we like to follow to ensure the best possible result for your roof. Our process is so fool proof that we’ve never been beaten by a leak!
First, we inspect the roofs structure along with roof tiles, ridge capping and roof bedding for any visible damage. We will remove old cement mortar and replace it, ensuring a strong bedding foundation for the new ridge capping. After the new ridge capping is in place, we install weep holes. Weep holes allow any water escape from underneath the ridge capping after rain. We clean off excess mortar and then apply a flexible pointing material called Flexipoint which expands and contracts with the temperature and weather changes, ensuring the roof pointing withstands years of wear. We finish by removing any grit, apply a sealer coat and apply a colour coat so your new ridge capping blends seamlessly with your existing roofing.
Many roofing contractors will do an average job as they only have basic knowledge and experience on roof repointing and repairs. You don’t want to be let down by a cheap but dodgy contractor.
