If you have a tiled roof, you may find that the bedding and pointing will need to be replaced. Over time, the cement mixture (also known as bedding or mortor) used to keep ridge capping on a roof can crack or fall out. The process of replacing this mixture is called re-bedding.
Once the bedding is hard enough to support the ridge capping, the flexible pointing is applied. The pointing available on the market now is a flexible material that can move small amounts to suit Australian weather conditions. The pointing forms a stronger bond, holding the ridge capping more firmly in place.
