Why ridge tile pointing and re-bedding is best left to the professionals.

You may think that ridge tiles on your roof serve no useful purpose or that they are just there for show. Maybe, you have never even noticed them before. Ridge tiles are in fact an integral part of your roof and must be in good repair for the sake of the validity of your home insurance.

When the sand and cement mortar that bond ridge tiles to the roof has worn away, the tiles will slip or fall off. This is the time to consider ridge tile pointing and re-bedding of the tiles as it is essential job that requires doing, if only to help protect your family or neighbours from being in the path of any loose tiles.

There are a number of procedures involved with successful ridge tile pointing and re-bedding. Some roofers use quite a few specialist tools that home and property owners won’t typically have lying around. In most cases a cherry picker will be required to access the ridge tiles in need of repair. Sometimes a grinder is needed.

Mortar mixing  and colour matching

Knowing the correct ratio of sand to cement (one part cement to six parts sand) is one thing, getting it to match the rest and to the right consistency is another. Some roofers choose to add plasticisers and masonry cement to improve the texture of mortar as not all sands and cements are of the same quality. In any case, mortar should never ever be stronger than the brick is. We add a little PVA to the mix as well as a trowel or two of lime plus where required  a bit of colouring.  We often use high alumina cement when there is a likelihood of rain. 

Making sure the mortar adheres to the tiles 

It is a roofers skill to make sure his pointing sticks and lasts. We have learnt always to bed ridge tiles where we can but the main secret of a good pointing job is to make sure the ridges are in fact wet when the mortar is applied. We dip the tiles and submerge them in  liquid when we can. Or paint the liquid on the tiles if we cannot move them out of place. That mixture is a closely guarded secret. We are proud to boast that our pointing very rarely fails and falls out. We guarantee all of our work.

Use of bedding frames and sticks

Bedding frames or stick ensure that ridge tile pointing and re-bedding conforms to a straight line. It looks really easy to use one of these, actually, it isn’t!

Working at height

It isn’t easy to undertake any task at great height and if you are not used to it, you could end up falling when passing things to and fro, even if you don’t attempt this alone.  We use scaffold towers and industrial type cat roof ladders to access roofs. We always tie our ladders. To us safety is paramount.
