Roof Pointing

Have you spotted a leak or missing tiles on your roof? Your roof pointing might need a refresh. Upside Down can provide same day roof repointing to keep your home secure and structurally sound.

Quality Roof Pointing Near Me

While roof pointing might not mean much to you as a homeowner, it’s one of the most important structural features of your roof. Pointing is the mortar or cement used to seal the edges and lines of your roof.

Older homes tend to have cement pointing which is inflexible and prone to cracking. Newer homes generally have a flexible pointing compound which is better suited to withstand temperature changes and weather conditions but even then, it is not immune. 

Damaged or cracked pointing can be a major structural problem if not remedied promptly. Here are a few signs you can watch out for that might mean it’s time for some roof repointing:

  • Cracks or gaps in the pointing.
  • Missing tiles.
  • Roof leak.
  • Loose mortar/cement or broken tiles. 
  • Older roofs with cement pointing.

It can be difficult to identify when you need repointing and many of these signs can be from another problem entirely. A professional roofer like those at Upside Down can help to identify the cause and best solution to your roofing problems, whether that’s repointing or something else.

Roof Pointing FAQ

Upside Down is here to point you in the right direction with insightful roofing information.

Pointing sits alongside bedding as a crucial element of tiled roofs. Where bedding is mortar layered underneath ridge caps, pointing is the mortar - or flexible compound - used as a finishing touch. It seals the edges and spaces between exposed tiles, providing a waterproof finish for your roof that will keep rain out.

Modern flexible pointing compounds are designed with waterproofing in mind. The adhesive mechanical fastener provides support as bedding, while preventing water (rain) from seeping through any gaps between ridge caps and tiles. Certain products are even classified for use in cyclonic regions.

No, not every roof requires pointing. It’s only required on tiled roofs as metal roofs are laid flush.

As old bedding and pointing is hardened and often cracked, it will be removed entirely. Therefore, when rebedding and repointing, the new compound or mortar will be placed on a clean surface. This ensures that the material properly dries and adheres to the tiles with no obstruction.
