Roof Leaks & Ridge Cap Repointing

How Regular Roof Repairs Can Prevent Roof Leaks

The roof area is one of the most overlooked parts of any house and roof leaks happen because we don’t inspect it leading to your roof often becoming neglected. Not only is our roof structure the most important part of the house, it is the main barrier protecting our possessions and ourselves from the elements.

We recommend having your roof surface inspected at least once a year, preferably before winter (when you should probably clean the gutters as well…) to ensure any loose ridge capping, cracked roof tiles and old silicone seals are repaired to reduce the chance of any roof leaks.

How Does Repointing Your Ridge Capping Prevent Roof Leaks?

Ridge capping sits on the top of your roof and travels down the hips of your roof to provide a watertight finish over the cut tiles that meet underneath. They sit on cement bedding and pointed over using a flexible pointing compound that seals and bonds the ridge line to the top row of tiles, creating a waterproof seal.

If the ridge capping is loose, has moved from its bed of cement or has cracks along the seam, then chances are the ridge capping is no longer water tight, therefore exposing your home to roof leaks and possible water damage.
