Terracotta Tile and Concrete Tile Roof Re Pointing Repairs in Melbourne

Get a quality roof re pointing job and repairs for a value for money price

The tradesmen who quote your roof repair work have 30 years of experience working doing repointing on Melbourne roofs.
Terracotta roof tile re pointing and repairs are a lot trickier than concrete tile roof repairs. Some terracotta dating back to the 1920’s is very brittle, tiles can be difficult to source and can be hard to work with. However the effort and care taken is well worthwhile. When we walk across the roof fully loaded with mortar for the pointing its likely we will be breaking tiles. Therefore we always carry plenty of spare tiles to your job. These tiles will be the same size but the colour will inevitably vary sometimes as old terracotta tiles are becoming more difficult to source. The pointing material we use is of the highest quality trade standard “right out of the bucket”, and is manufactured locally in Melbourne.

NO diluting or adding sand to make the pointing go further! You get a quality job with quality materials.

close up of roof tile pointing
We take digital pictures of your roof during inspection, whilst the work is being done and after we have finished, you can see the completed work even if you can't get on the roof so you can have full peace of mind.
Lets face it....not everyone wants (or are able) to get up on a roof to inspect the roof repair or restoration work after it has been completed.
If you are really busy at work....give us permission to do the roof inspection, we will email pictures and a quote to your work place

Re Pointing for cement tiled and terra cotta tiled roofs.

If you let your ridge cap pointing deteriorate water can get in and the ridge caps can be blown off or dislodged in high winds. Gaps in the ridge caps especially at the lower end of the hips can let animals in like possums.
Not getting the repairs done can lead to excessive leaking and roof timbers rotting requiring expensive replacement.
We use a flexible waterproof pointing compound (definitely NOT cement) especially formulated and recommended by architects, builders and professional roofers. This product is more like an adhesive than a cement. that's why it achieves a high wind load rating. It's flexible too, in order to withstand the small movements in the roof structure timbers. It won't crack so it lasts for a lot longer than traditional cement.

Concrete Tile Roofing in Melbourne, Roof Repairs, Roof Painting or not to Paint?

We will give you an honest opinion of what actually needs to be done
Has someone told you that your roof cannot be restored and that you need a new roof? Let us have a look and give you a realistic opinion of what can be achieved. You might have a leak that just needs a tile or two to be changed to get it fixed. Or just pointing that needs work. A roof inspection will sort out what needs to be done, and if you don't need the roof painted just get the basics done like pointing, re bedding, new valleys and get the flashings checked over.
new roof valleys
The above image shows terracotta roof valley repairs - straight tile cuts and storm seal valley sealer is placed under the tiles before the tiles are replaced. This will help to keep out vermin and stormwater.
