You may have heard of roof repointing, but do you know what it actually is and why it is important for your home? Today we will be covering this topic so you can get a better understanding of it and know if your home needs roof repointing.
WHAT IS ROOF REPOINTING?
On tiled roofs, there are ridge tiles, also commonly known as capping tiles, which work to prevent water damage. Roof repointing is where we use a layer of flexible pointing material over the roof bedding to ensure that your roof tiles and ridge tiles are kept securely in place. It also acts as a seal preventing water, moisture, and dust from coming through your roof.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
The repointing material expands and contracts to accommodate to different weather conditions and the seasons. Because of this, it does require maintenance to maintain the best possible condition. If it is left unchecked and without maintenance, you risk cracking and deterioration in the pointing material, leading to leaks and water damage in your home. That’s why it’s imperative to engage a reputable business, like us here at Brisbane Tile Roof Restorations, to repoint your roof. Ideally roof repointing should be carried out once every ten years.
