Our specialized rebedding and pointing services are designed to protect your roof against leaks, weathering, and structural damage, ensuring its continued resilience for years to come

What is Roof Rebed & Repoint?

Rebedding and pointing are essential processes that involve restoring the integrity of ridge caps on tiled roofs. Ridge caps are the peaked tiles along the ridge line of your roof. Over time, weather exposure can cause the mortar that holds these tiles in place to deteriorate, leading to leaks and potential damage to your property.

The Rebedding Process:

  1. Inspection: Our experts thoroughly inspect the ridge caps and mortar to determine the extent of deterioration and damage.
  2. Removal: Damaged or deteriorated mortar is carefully removed from between the ridge caps and the roof tiles.
  3. Cleaning: The area is cleaned to ensure proper adhesion of the new mortar.
  4. Rebedding: Fresh mortar is applied to create a stable foundation for the ridge caps.
  5. Alignment: Ridge caps are properly aligned and adjusted to ensure an even appearance and optimal water runoff.

  2. Applying Mortar: New mortar is applied along the exposed edges of the ridge caps, sealing the joints between them.
  3. Finishing: The mortar is skillfully shaped and finished to match the profile of the ridge caps and provide a seamless appearance.
