The upside down pointed ‘V’ shaped tiles on the very top and sides of your roof are known as ridge caps. They are in place to create a seal to prevent water and other undesirable element from getting between the gaps in your roof tiles. These ridge caps are held down and supported by a bed of mortar to fix them in place. Unfortunately over time this bedding will begin to crack as the mortar naturally shrinks and expands. When this happens the mortar no longer binds the ridge capping and can allow water to leak into your roof cavity. This is where our roof pointing experts come in.
If you suspect that some of your roof ridge caps may be coming loose, the friendly team at Bondtek can offer a complete roof repointing service. Our professional team will determine the most effective approach depending on the condition of the roof, as well as based on the type of tiles you have, including cement or terracotta tiles.
You can rely on Bondtek for the best repointing roof tiles services in Melbourne including:
- Roof tile pointing
- Cracked ridge tile replacement

- Repointing ridge tiles
Before any work begins, we conduct a thorough assessment of the condition of your roof ridge caps and give you an honest recommendation based on our findings.
Due to exposure to the elements over time your roof tiles will begin to deteriorate. This is a natural process that can’t be prevented. In cases where the bedding cement of your ridge caps is found to be in poor condition, we recommend re-bedding the ridge caps before they are pressure cleaned and repointed. We’ll also replace any chipped or cracked caps while we’re at it. Repointing the ridge caps is done with a flexible pointing compound that is durable and flexible to allow for natural movement into the roof structure.
All work is carried out by experienced and licensed repointing roof experts and completed to our renowned high standards. Call our friendly Melbourne team today to ensure your roof ridge tiles stay in perfect condition for years to come.
