The structural composition of your roof is generally comprised of several layers. The most visible layer consists of roof tiles, which are held in place by roof bedding mortar that creates strong adhesion and prevents displacement. The layer beneath the roof bedding is referred to as the roof pointing, which seals the property against damaging outdoor elements such as dust and water.
Roof pointing is designed to be durable and long-lasting, but it can deteriorate over time due to inclement weather conditions. At Federation Roofing, we’re proud to offer professional roof repointing in Melbourne. Our specialists use flexible pointing compounds as opposed to cement mortar to deliver superior results for homes and businesses alike.
There are numerous reasons why you should consider repointing a tile roof when visible damage has occurred. Disastrous consequences can occur if issues aren’t addressed, including leakages that cause damage to ceilings and affect the general structural integrity of the property. The aesthetic appearance of the property can also be affected, creating an impression of dilapidation or worse.
Repointing roof ridge tiles on a regular basis will ensure that your property maintains its condition for years to come. Given the volatile nature of Australian weather conditions, we recommend repointing a roof at least once every ten years.
