What Is Pointing On A Roof?

Blogs roof-pointing roof-re-pointing-1

In the construction, there is a simple yet crucial task called roof pointing. Roof pointing involves sealing gaps and cracks in your roof with a mix of cement mortar. This pointing material is applied to the structure where your roof tiles sit, and where different roof areas intersect. This is done with a flexible pointing compound. But why is it important, and how is it done?

The purpose of Roof Pointing

The purpose of a roof is to protect your house from the elements. Over time your tiled roof can crack, which leads to openings and leaks. Roof repointing and ridge capping steps in to seal up those gaps, which makes sure that your home stays dry and sturdy.

Key Benefits of Pointing Roof Tiles


Repointing roof ridge tiles prevents water from leaking in through your roof bedding into your home. A leaking roof can be very dangerous and expensive.

Strength of your Roof

Maintaining the strength and structural integrity of your roof is very important. The structure could ultimately collapse, or warp if the tile pointing of your existing roof is not done by a roofing professional.

Having proper roof pointing applied to your roof extends the life span of your roof. This saves you money in the long run from having to pay for roof repairs.

Sidewalk Appeal

Other than the functional benefits of having roof pointing and roof ridge capping, tiled roofs that are pointed look a lot better, and cleaner from the curb.
