Ridge Cap Pointing

Cementing Ridge Cap Bedding & Pointing Tiles


Over time, the condition of a cement or terracotta tiled roof will naturally deteriorate, due to the fact it bears the full brunt of the force of the elements on a year-round basis. Ridge capping, especially, is prone to damage when exposed to heavy rain and high winds over a period of years and because it performs such a vital function – preventing rainwater from penetrating your roof and making its way into your home – it is important to repair such damage as soon as it is noticed. Our roof repair Perth team specialise in the bedding and pointing of ridge caps, and can carry out all the necessary repairs to make your roof waterproof once again. All you need to do is to pick up the phone and call us during normal business hours to request a detailed quotation for the work in question. We do not charge a fee for the preparation of quotes and you are, of course, under no obligation to hire us unless you wish to do so.

What Makes Our Roofing Team the Best in the Businesses

We are far from the only company that provides a service covering roof repair south of the river and in central Perth but in our honest opinion, we are definitely the best.

  • Experienced Specialists – As mentioned above, our roofing repair team is compromised of experienced specialists who have completed ridge cap rebedding and repointing work on many properties in the area over the years. As an added bonus, we also carry out gutter repair in Perth so if your guttering has seen better days, we can take care of that as well. In short, we are well acquainted with all the component parts of roofs on both residential and commercial properties, making us the obvious choice when you want to make sure that a job is done properly the first time around.
  • Thorough Repairs – Many roofing repair firms choose to repoint old ridge caps without first checking the condition of the bedding that lies beneath. While this may enable them to complete jobs faster than would otherwise be the case, it can result in more serious repairs being required in the future. We always check the condition of the cement bedding on which ridge caps sit, to establish whether it needs replacing, before we repoint them and if we believe it is necessary, the first thing we will do is to lay a fresh cement bed on which to secure your ridge caps. In this way, we can make sure that the caps are 100% secure and will not easily be dislodged by strong winds.
  • High Quality Materials – Rather than using traditional cement to repoint your ridge caps, our team will use Starpoint cement: a flexible yet very strong product that will move with your roof as it contracts and expands in the changing weather conditions throughout the course of the average year. Because it flexes to accommodate such movement, this type of cement will not crack. Furthermore, it is strong enough to withstand the force of cyclonic winds. If you are planning to hire our team to perform a gutter replacement in Perth at the same time as rebedding and repointing your ridge caps, you can rest assured that we will only use the very best guttering as well. Cheaper materials may reduce the overall cost of roof and gutter repairs but in our experience they are a false economy as they are prone to failing at the worst possible moments.
  • Comprehensive Knowledge of Roofing Systems – As mentioned earlier, in addition to ridge cap bedding and pointing, our team also carry out gutter repair south of the river and in the CBD, which makes us a great choice when you have more than one problem with your roofing that you would like to address. If you are looking for a company that can survey your roof, identify any issues with the guttering and ridge caps, and then propose a cost effective solution, you have come to the right place! Our primary aim in business is to solve our customers' problems in the most economical and efficient way possible.
