At Melbourne Roof Tiling Services Pty Ltd, we provide professional roof repointing services for homes and businesses across Melbourne.

Roof repointing, also known as roof re-bedding, involves repairing and restoring the mortar joints between the tiles on a roof. Over time, the mortar used to secure the roof tiles can deteriorate due to weathering, exposure to sunlight, and other factors. This can lead to cracks, gaps, or dislodged tiles, which can compromise the integrity of the roof.

Roof repointing involves removing the old, damaged mortar and replacing it with new mortar or flexible pointing compound to reinforce the bond between the tiles and ensure a watertight seal.

Roof repointing helps to maintain the structural integrity of the roof, prevent water leaks, and prolong its lifespan.

Roof Repointing Process

A roof repointing project will typically include the following steps:

  • Inspection: One of our professional roofing contractors will examine the roof to assess the condition of the mortar joints and identify areas that require repointing.
  • Preparation: The roof is cleaned to remove debris, moss, or any loose material that may interfere with the repointing process.
  • Mortar removal: The old mortar is carefully chipped out or raked out from between the roof tiles using specialised tools, taking care not to damage the tiles themselves.
  • Re-bedding: Once the old mortar is removed, any loose or dislodged tiles are repositioned and secured in their proper places using fresh mortar.
  • Repointing: The new mortar is applied into the gaps between the tiles. It is pressed firmly to ensure a strong bond and a neat finish. The mortar should match the original color and composition for aesthetic purposes.
  • Finishing touches: Excess mortar is cleaned off the tiles, and the roof is inspected to ensure all the joints are properly filled and the tiles are securely in place.
