Why rebedding and repointing a roof is so important

Many of my customers don't realise that the most important aspect in a tiled roof restoration, is rebedding and repointing the roof tiles. If only it was as simple as a quick pressure clean and a lick of paint – imagine how much easier my job would be!

But the reality is, there's a lot more to a roof restoration than meets the eye. Below I have explained the steps we take when restoring the integrity of a tiled roof.

Step 1 – Repointing the ridge capping
In most cases ridge capping can be just repointed by troweling over the existing mortar & filling any cracks.

Step 2 – Rebedding the ridge caps
If the existing mortar is loose & falling out the ridge capping needs rebedding which requires all the the ridge caps coming off.

Step 3 – Fresh mortar
The old mortar is then discarded & fresh bedding mortar is applied.

Step 4 – Repointing
Ridge caps are then repointed & colour matched to suit the roof tiles.

After these steps are complete, I often finish the job with a full re-spray of the roof in the colour selected by the owner.

And then, voila! She's as good as new and will last you another 7-10 years.

Coastal Roof Restorations were superbly efficient. We organised a roof repair from New Zealand (for an elderly parent on her Gold Coast property). Rob is an excellent communicator and we had absolute confidence he would carry out the work to an extremely high standard. The owner of the property was impressed with his honest, friendly and professional manner and is delighted with the end result. We will certainly use Rob again for any further roof maintenance work required. Marj & Peter Ayson

Very pleased with my newly restored roof. It looks great. Rob was easy to do business with and was on time for my quote appointment.

I would recommend them to everyone.

Very pleased with the team from Coastal Roof Restorations. We’ve only moved into this house 3 weeks ago & the old red roof was desperate of some TLC!! Rob replied promptly & within 2 weeks the lovely Jamie was here transforming our roof. He is a hard worker & very personable, we couldn’t believe how much he got done every single day! We went for the colour Monument & it is gorgeous. Next step, painting the rest of the house (goodbye orange) to make it as beautiful as the roof.

We found Rob at Coastal Roof Restorations via Google Search and Reviews - these were outstanding, so we're happy to add to the positive vibes out there for his business. Both Rob and his team member Liam were professional, courteous and timely. The pricing was reasonable relative to industry standards and considering the rave reviews on his work, so no need to look further. Job was very well done - on time and on budget. Just need to get the gutters and gables painted a complimentary colour in a couple of weeks time and the place will look brand new.

Blake attended my property and within 10 minutes on the roof, had deciphered the root cause of the leak and the issues pertaining to the leak we'd experienced during last year's inclement weather. His knowledge was refreshing given the number of "experts" we'd had attend our property previously. Communication was great, he attended when he said he would and returned to complete the works when rain was prohibitive to the works. Carlos who attended to wash the roof was very thorough and passionate about his work, sharing numerous photos of our roof. I have no hesitation in recommending Blake and his team.

Very pleased with the job that Rob and Liam did with our roof. We had the roof cleaned, some tiles replaced and then we had it painted. Rob was very professional in the way he communicated with me the whole way through and the roof looks incredible now thanks to the paint job that Liam did for us. I was surprised with how quickly Rob was able to come out and do the quote and then within a couple of weeks; our roof is looking superb. Couldn’t speak more highly of Coastal Roof Restorations.
