Rebed and Point

A Common problem for Tiled roofs needing repair is cement mortar coming away from the ridge caps, Rebedding and repointing is one of the most important parts of any tiled roof restoration, and involves two key aspects – rebedding, and repointing.

This process can help to save you money on costly repairs in the future and may help to prolong the lifespan of your roof. At Royce Roofing, we have extensive experience in all aspects of roof repairs and restorations.

Bedding and pointing are important parts of a tiled roof’s structure. The bedding holds your roof ridge caps in place, while the pointing strengthens and seals them adhearing the ridge cap to the mortar. As such, rebedding is the process of removing the old cement mortar from under ridge tiles and then resetting the connected ridge caps to hold the roof tiles in place and is usually required when the mortar is broken or badly cracked. Repointing involves pointing (or sealing) the ridge caps and tiles, which is commonly done using a waterproof flexible pointing compound.

When the existing pointing or bedding of your roof becomes damaged or worn, you may experience roof leaks and other problems. Broken, cracked, or damaged mortar provides entry points for rainwater, and can lead to things such as mould, wood rot and other moisture-related issues that are often costly and time-consuming to resolve. Additionally, broken or cracked mortar may also cause your roof tiles to shift or loosen, which poses a safety hazard.

The bedding and pointing of your tiled roof will also naturally deteriorate over time as a result of general wear and tear from exposure to the elements, such as the sun, wind, and rain, as well as debris such as leaves and dirt. It is generally recommended to repoint a tiled roof every ten years, to prevent damage from occurring due to deteriorated or leaking mortar.

Repointing and rebedding is an important aspect of property maintenance for any homeowner who has a tiled roof and will save you money in the long term by preventing leaks and other issues that require costly repairs. The team at Royce Roofing will conduct a thorough assessment of your roof to determine the best course of action, and then carry out all required work to the highest safety and quality standards while keeping you informed every step of the way.

Had my roof done in August and everyone was very helpful and friendly - it was a big job and fairly reasonable having obtained other quotes. Other companies also charge $$ for replacing tiles and other small items whereas RR included them.A few days ago, I heard a tapping sound coming from the ceiling and contacted Royce Roofing to have a look and see if they could fix the issue. They followed up with me and got someone to come out immediately. Upon checking, they discovered small cracks on two tiles which they replaced.Very happy with my experience from obtaining quote through to after sale warranty - highly recommended.

It’s not easy to find good roofers; based on online reviews, we decided to try Royce Roofing. Hannah from Commercial Sales used a drone to provide us with evidence as to the state of our roof. Utilising this technology meant that we were able to see for ourselves the condition of our roof. Hannah was honest and straight talking and she kept us in the loop as to how long it would take for us to have our roof repaired.With all the storms Melbourne is experiencing; all roofers are flat out right now. It was worth the wait to get Dale to do our roofing repairs. Dale treated our place like his own and gave us excellent roof maintenance tips. Dale worked hard to complete our job in a time efficient manner whilst also doing a high quality repair. The outdoor area was hosed down and cleaned so that there was no damage to our plants/planter boxes below. Dale was polite, friendly and honest. Once again, photos were provided as evidence of the job Dale completed.The service provided from Royce Roofing from the receptionist, to sales, roofers and the accounts department is professional and attentive. The management of this company are obviously working hard to create a great environment for their team and are to be congratulated. Thanks Royce Roofing.
