The Benefits of Repointing and Rebedding

Bedding and pointing are both crucial parts of a roof's foundation. They are responsible for keeping the entire tile structure in place. If a foundation is weakened, then your entire roof is at risk.

Faulty pointing can have many severe effects on your entire house.


Broken or cracked mortar will allow for excess moisture and leaks to seep into your ceiling. This may lead to mould growth, which can quickly spread throughout your house and into your ductwork. This can be a serious health hazard to you and your family.

Wood Rot

Excess moisture can also cause wood rot. Rotting wood becomes weaker and weaker over time, and is at high risk of breaking. This could severely compromise your house's structure, and may even increase the risk of floors or ceilings collapsing.

Loose Roof Tiles

If you live in a rainy climate, repointing is definitely something to consider. Constant water exposure can weaken the roof pointing and cause it to crumble. This can cause roof tiles to shift out of place or loosen. This can be a big safety issue, as the loose tiles could slide off the roof and cause injury.

Safe and Secure

Having your roof repointed and rebedded will ensure your house stays safe and secure. If you notice any potential damage on your pointing or just know that a repointing service is very overdue, don't wait until something goes wrong.

How to Know if Your Roof Needs Repointing

What is Roof Pointing?

Roof pointing is an essential part of any roof's structure that helps keep the entire network in place. It goes hand in hand with a roof's bedding. The bedding is usually made of cement mortar and is used to hold a roof's ridge tiles in place.

Pointing is made from a flexible pointing compound. Its ductile nature makes it the perfect protection against the harsh Australian elements. The flexible material helps to minimise the shrinkage and cracking issues that are commonly seen with cement.

The pointing is placed over the bedding to lock in the ridge tiles, creating a tighter seal and stronger hold. Together, bedding and pointing keep your ridge capping and overall roof secure.

What is Roof Repointing?

Roof repointing is the process of restoring and resealing the ridge capping mortar joints on a roof. It is often completed alongside rebedding, which is the process of removing broken or cracked cement mortar and replacing it.

Ridge caps are the first line of defence against the harsh elements, and so are likely to wear down over time due to exposure. Roof repointing will restore both the physical and visual integrity of your home's ridge capping structure.

Signs that your Roof Needs Repointing

Flexible pointing usually lasts around 10 years, but it's important to keep an eye on the compound to make sure it's staying strong. There are several signs to look for that could indicate faulty roof pointing, including:

  • Loose roof tiles
  • Missing roof tiles
  • Roof leaks
  • Excess moisture inside your home
  • Mortar or tile granules in the gutter

If you detect any of the above signs of pointing damage, contact a professional roofer to inspect your roof. The experts at Jim's Roofing are available 24/7 for all of your repointing needs.

Is Your Home Built Before 1995?

Pointing was originally made from cement mortar, just like bedding. This pointing material was extremely rigid, and so was more prone to cracking and breaking as a house naturally shifted.

In 1995, a flexible pointing compound was introduced to replace cement mortar. Many older homes still have the original roof pointing, which will likely have cracked and worn down over time.

If your home was built before 1995, there's a chance you still have the outdated cement mortar pointing on your roof. If you haven't upgraded to flexible pointing since then, it is definitely time for a repointing job.

All of your roof repointing questions answered right here.

It is recommended that you replace your roof pointing every 10 years. Exposure to outdoor elements will cause natural wear and tear over time, so it's important to have your roof repointed before the flexible compound starts to wear down and fail. This will happen roughly every 10 years, but may change depending on your roof's exposure to harsh elements. If you suspect your pointing may be on its way out, contact a roofing professional for an inspection.

Repointing is done using a flexible pointing compound. It is able to flex with the natural movement of a house, to prevent cracking and breaking. Flexible pointing is both UV and rain resistant. It has been specially formulated to withstand the harsh Australian climate conditions, to keep your roof locked in place long term.

It is not recommended to DIY a repointing job. Poorly completed repointing can lead to severe house damage, such as roof leaks and wood rot. A professional roofer will carry out your repointing work in a safe and secure manner that will guarantee longevity for your roof.
