If you have a tiled roof, there may come a time when you need get the bedding and pointing replaced. This is a service that needs to be done by a professional. Read on for more.
Bedding is the cement mortar that holds the ridge capping (the capping covers the joins on different sides of the roof) to the roof tiles in a straight line. Once the bedding is hard enough to support the ridge capping, the pointing is applied. The pointing is a flexible material that covers the bedding and provides an attractive finish.
In old tiled roofs, the pointing was just a cement mortar that was prone to cracking over time and even falling out. The new flexible pointing means that it can move small amounts to suit the weather conditions. Because it is so resistant to cracking, it forms a stronger bond, holding the ride capping more firmly in place.
Bedding and pointing needs to be done by a professional roofer or roof tiler. They will remove any traces of the old bedding and pointing and properly prepare the tiles before re-bedding and pointing. Ensure that your professional is fully qualified, licensed, and insured. They should give you a written quotation with all of the info that you need on the costs of re-bedding and pointing.
