How much does roof repointing and rebedding cost?
Roofs hold the peace of your house, even though its sole purpose is to protect the residents, people aren’t willing to pay hundreds of dollars for the provision of roof repointing and re-bedding. In Australia, replacing the roof is costlier than choosing to restore the pathway. Refurbishing the roof depends upon several factors; from the size of the roof to the type of repair.
Understanding the concept of rebedding and roof repointing
To put it simply, it is like the ‘icing on the cake’, and the cake is the roof. Pointing is the final tiles that are paved on to join the edges of a house or a building to keep the roofs together. As per the standardised Melbourne housing trend, the roof tiles are then fixed into place and they don’t necessarily require adhesives or sealants or any particular applicants. Once it has been applied, the ridge capping is then sealed around the edge area and is then placed by a ‘bed’ of mortar; which is made up of cement and sand, or a very flexible pointing compound. This compound keeps them firm and ensures that it isn’t leaking and is waterproof.
The repointing roof tiles or roof ridge tiles are usually made up of terracotta, cement or slate tiles. Many years ago, mortars were commonly used. Still, with the advancement in roof technology, new products have developed and have wider flexibility range as pointing compounds- it is stronger than mortar and is more long-lasting.
Do I require roof re-bedding or roof repointing?
When planning for roof restoration in NSW, Ridge capping can become brittle as dust accumulates and this can dislodge the capping from a fixed position. When this happens it can lead to loosening of the grip and tends to crack. This is fairly normal in an older roof and it's hard to prevent.
If you are looking for the reasons to go ahead with rebuilding and replacement alongside roof repointing, one should carefully consider the existing condition of the roof and see if the following applies to the present condition of the roof:
The following conditions make it likely that a roof repointing is needed.
- Does the ridge capping mortar have cracks?
- Are there any broken ridge capping?
- Does the ridge capping go in a straight line or has it been shifted?
- Does it have any missing roof ridge tiles?
- Is there any water leaking inside the home of the ceiling?
A reliable roof restoration company carefully assesses these symptoms as ridge capping is the most important part of the roof. If a roof ridge tile loosens, it could lead to water leakage in your house, this becomes extremely difficult with the crazy weather and strong wind that one experiences in the city of Melbourne. With the unpredictability of the weather, a tile can be blown off the roof and this can lead to damaging the neighbouring home, ending up breaking a window, even damaging the cars or worse, personal injury.
Considering and depending upon the rest of the condition of the roof like tiles, one either needs to do a partial or complete roof restoration. A complete roof replacement involves renewing the entire roof and replacing all the chipped and broken tiles, gutter-sewage system and downpipes.
A cracked ridge capping is one of the clearest signs that a roof repointing may be needed. You should also be aware that a missing roof tiles ridge usually requires immediate repointing and rebuilding of the roof.
