Many homeowners, including those living in Wantirna, are still loving homes with tile roofing. There is just something about its traditional look that makes it very appealing. Moreover, good quality Terracotta or cement tile roofing is also very durable lasting up to 30 years.

Of course, the longevity of tile roofing also depends on doing the proper maintenance when needed. In particular, homeowners must pay attention to the ridge caps or tiles that join the edges of roof tiles because these are usually the first to get damages.

Need help with your tile roofing? Melbourne Roof Specialist can help.

Rebedding and Repointing

The installation of ridge caps involves the bedding and pointing. The bedding refers to the mortar, sand and cement mixture used to glue the ridge cap to the surface, while the pointing is the sealant used to seal the joints between the tiles. So, in case of the need to replace ridge caps, most likely you also need to do repointing and rebedding.

But there are cases that even if the ridge caps don’t need to be replaced, repointing and rebedding are necessary. Over time, the pointing may crack and chip away, which exposes the bedding so that this also begins to deteriorate.

If you notice a drip along the ridge particularly when there is a long duration of rain, it is likely that there is a crack in the bedding and pointing. Before things get worse, it is recommended to ask a professional roofer to inspect the area and do the required work.

De-mossing and Pressure Cleaning

Another common problem with tile roofs is the growth of moss. Moss growth are usually not evenly distributed throughout the roof. It doesn’t appear on the parts of the roof that get sunshine but on parts that are shady and cool. Moss can make the roof look unappealing especially when it dries out. If not removed, the moss also contributes to the cracking of tiles.

There are proper steps to removing moss, which include replacing broken tiles, applying an anti-fungal solution, pressure washing, rebedding and repointing. It is best for an experienced roof specialist to undertake this tedious type of work.

Roof specialists replaced our sagging old tiled roof with a new colourbond roof. They worked really well with our carpenter and communicated well before and during the project. We are really happy with the end result. Their pricing was competive and we definately recommend them.

Amanda W
Great team, and seamless experience. The team kept me up to date and the work done was thorough, and to a high quality. Highly recommended. Restored our late 70’s tiled roof to look like new. Neighbors have all commented how great it now looks.

Peter Pianta
I had a number of roofing tradespeople who had repaired and replaced sections of my roof in the past and I had not been overly happy with the quality of work completed. After making the tough decision to replace the entire roof, I turned to the roof specialist for assistance. Whilst not the cheapest, they were competitively priced and in terms of the outcome achieved, great value for money. The team was fast, efficient, tidy and the finish was excellent. One could not ask for much more.
