Roof pointing and bedding are essential parts of a roof’s structure and require regular maintenance to ensure your house stays in top condition. Roof bedding is a cement mortar that holds the roof tiles in place. Over time, the bedding is subject to natural wear. Loose tiles are a common sign a roof needs to be re-bedded. If the bedding is not maintained, it may crack or fall away completely and leave the roof tiles unsecure. Roof pointing is a second layer which goes over the top and helps create a stronger hold on the tiles and seal the roof against dust and water.
