Re-Bedding and Re-Pointing Ridge and Hip Tiles in Melbourne
Keeping a home warm and dry should be the priority of any roofing job and this is true in Melbourne more than ever. However, with moisture and temperature fluctuations that occur over time, the mortar that bonds the ridge and hip tiles to your roof can become damaged. When the ridge and hip tiles separate from your roof there is serious potential for damage to your roof shingles, the potential for moisture to enter your home and, as a worst case scenario, cause your roof tiles to blow off and cause further damage to other parts of your property or even people.
It’s tempting to think you can rebed and repoint your roof yourself. But a handful of loose tiles might be warning you of a much deeper problem with the bed of mortar and layer of pointing beneath. Repointing roof tiles should be left to the experts which is why we specialise in the maintenance and repair of ridge and hip tiles on your roof. Rebedding and repointing ridge tiles starts with a visit from one of our accomplished professionals to assess any damage and identify the level of repairs that are required. We can photograph and catalogue the damage to make sure you know exactly what maintenance is required, then work with you to find the most suitable repair process to get your roof sealed and fully functional again. At Top Tier Slate Roofing, we’re repointing Melbourne one roof at a time.
When it comes to your roof, it’s what you don’t see that’s often causing damage. Have you noticed loose tiles on your roof? Or, is there an unexplained leak you can’t quite put your finger on? If these sound familiar, you may be in need of rebedding and repointing. At Top Tier Slate Roofing we endeavour to reuse ridge and hip tiles whenever their condition allows it. By taking off the existing ridge and hip tiles we can repair the damaged mortar underneath as well as rebed with new mortar and repoint for a stronger hold that also protects against dust and water. When we rebed your roof we use an extra layer of roof pointing to increase the mortars hold on your roof tiles, making sure your safety and security always come first.
It’s easy to think your roof is maintenance free. After all, it’s job is to protect you from the elements. Over time though, the mortar on your roof that is used to bond ridge and hip tiles can weaken. When erosion of this mortar occurs there is a risk of exposed gaps in the roof pointing. As these gaps steadily increase over size, they expose more and more mortar to the elements. Without proper maintenance, ridge and hip tile pointing can fall out and lead to much greater structural problems on your roof. Prevention is better than a cure when it comes to your ridge and hip tiles, so let us put a stop to erosion and damage with our proven rebedding Melbourne and repointing Melbourne services.
