 Repointing and Rebedding Ridge Caps

Failed ridge cap pointing means water getting into the cement {mortar] bedding under the ridge cap that will in turn weaken the cement bedding so in high winds you might lose some of your ridge caps. Do you ever notice right on the corner of your roof, your lowest ridge cap has slid down a bit? What happens the other ridge caps follow suit and gradually slide down. You definitely don’t want that, do you? Because Rodents, possums, birds etc get in and cause some serious damage inside your roof and furthermore they can die in your roof and produce a wonderful smell. Don’t forget the noise these animals make at night when you are trying to get to sleep.

It will be worthwhile to check your insurance company will cover you for the loss then have a look at the small print in your policy. Generally, you will find that if your roof ridge cap pointing and bedding has been maintained in good condition, then this is the only situation where they will pay out.
