What is roof repointing and why you need it

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, the relationship between bedding and pointing, and know if your home roof needs re pointing.


On tiled roofs, there are ridge tiles, also commonly known as capping tiles or sometimes as ridge capping tiles, which work to prevent water damage. Roof repointing is where we use a layer of flexible pointing material alongside cement mortar over the roof bedding to ensure that your roof tiles and ridge tiles are kept securely in place as well as secure any loose tiles. It also acts as a seal preventing water, moisture, and dust from coming through your roof, thus maintaining greater structural integrity and protecting against harsher elements such as strong wind.


The repointing material expands and contracts to accommodate to different weather conditions and the seasons. Because of this, it does require maintenance, such as a roofing inspection, to maintain the best possible condition. If it is left unchecked and without maintenance, you risk cracking and deterioration in the pointing material. When the material experiences a crack of break, it can lead to water 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, a roof repointing service should be carried out once every ten years.
