Roof repointing is commonly performed when your tiled roof is looking tired, old and worn out. Repointing your roof tiles can fix the cracks and breaks in the mortar that holds tile ridges on your roof – meaning that you will have less risk of leaks and protecting you against harsh weather and climates, as well as the damage that comes from old age.
While there are several factors that determine the frequency of having your tiled roof repointed, it is recommended to have it done approximately every 10 years.

How Is a Tiled Roof Repointed?
Repointing a tiled roof is a complex job for someone who is not well-versed in the skills required. A professional repointing expert will perform your roof repointing process for you. This process involves applying a flexible compound to your roof structure to replace the older cement mortar. Before the repointing process begins, your roof will be inspected and any additional repairs recommended to ensure your home or property is safe and secure.
Why is Roof Repointing Important?
An improperly-maintained roof can have many issues – some of them posing risks to the people living in your home. Tiled roofs that do not undergo the repointing process and have undergone significant wear and tear are at risk of tiles or ridge capping coming off in high winds.
Should I Get My Tiled Roof Repointed?
If you are unsure if your tiled roof needs repointing, contact a professional to assess your roof and suggest the best outcome to keep your home safe and looking good. Other than repointing, an expert in roof restoration may suggest a coating or restoration to ensure you are getting the best out of your home.
