What Is Roof Bedding?
The roof bedding is a type of cement mortar used to help keep your roof tiles in place. Like all of the elements of your roofing, the bedding itself is subject to gradual wear and tear due to being starkly exposed to the elements. One of the most common signs that you need your roof bedding repaired is when your tiles are loose. If you do not re-bed your roof, it may result in the bedding becoming cracked or falling away completely, leaving your roof tiles exposed and vulnerable. These loose tiles can also be a safety hazard, having the potential to slide off and causing harm to someone near the house at the time.
In most circumstances we will try to avoid doing a full re-bedding process and focus only on the areas that need attention. This is due to the fact that over time the roof bedding cement actually becomes harder, and we don’t want to ruin the integrity of this strength unless we have to. As a result we often recommend the process of roof repointing in Melbourne.
What Is Roof Pointing?
Roof pointing is the second layer that sits on top of the roof bedding, helping to create a more solid and long lasting hold for the tiles. It also creates a seal in the roof, protecting your home against water and dust damage. By keeping out any moisture, the pointing allows the underlying bedding to remain protected and dry.
In the past, the roof pointing was made from cement mortar, but over time it has been replaced by flexible pointing compounds which deliver a more high quality and durable result.
The benefit of this flexible pointing is that it expands and contracts depending on the changing weather conditions, which is extremely important for the ever changing weather in Melbourne.
The problem that occurs with roof pointing is that it can become damaged or cracked over time. If your roof pointing has indeed cracked, its chances of producing a leak in your roof are greatly increased. In this case it is essential that you have your roof repointed by the experts at Roof Restorations Northern Suburbs. Furthermore, if you have an old property where the pointing is made out of old cement mortar, you should consider having a roof repointing to apply the flexible pointing.
