Roof Repairs Perth for Terracotta and Concrete Tile Roofs

Roof Pointing Perth for terracotta and concrete tiles. Roof pointing that’s flexible, waterproof and made to last.

Roof pointing that’s broken and cracked can cause so many issues in your roof space. Roof space insulation just might soak up any leaks from where the roof pointing needs to be done. However a permanent leak from ridge capping where the ridge cap pointing needs to be replaced can cause rotting in the timber hip beam and roof tile batten ends.
Failed ridge cap pointing means water getting into the cement bedding under the ridge cap that will in turn weaken the cement bedding so in high winds you might lose some of your ridge caps.
If you have an expectation that your insurance company will cover you for the loss then have a look at the small print in your policy. Generally, you will find that if your roof ridge cap pointing and bedding has been maintained in good condition, then this is the only situation where they will pay out.

Roof Pointing for ridge caps and types of materials

The main point to consider is that modern roof pointing material does not contain sand. It is specially formulated for the job and is waterproof and flexible. Specified by architects and builders for modern homes it has a long life, about 11 years, we call it “flexi”. However, you will need to use a contractor with experience to get the job done correctly. As in all renovation jobs, roof pointing is no different, applying flexible roof pointing material over a poorly prepared cement bedding will be a total waste of time. In addition if the edges of the ridge caps are dirty the flexible roof pointing material just won’t stick. We see this on loads of roof jobs, all looks good from street level but get up on the roof and there is a gap between the top edge of the pointing and the edge of the roof tile. This gap lets water in and over time as I mentioned before the cement bedding is weakened.
