We’ll help you understand what it really means!!
Roof rebedding is the cement mortar used in construction of roofs that holds the roofing tiles
together and in place.
Over time, the roof of your home is likely to get exposed to harmful UV rays
wind, rain and dirt that tends to wear down this cement mortar and forces it to crack thus allowing
the tiles to loosen up.
The roof tiles then become vulnerable to natural elements such as wind and
rain and go on to cause roof leaks along with the loose tiles flying away due to strong winds which
might cause harm to nearby houses and vehicles.
If you choose to get your roof rebedded from time to time, the tiles become stronger and remain
secured for the next couple of years. Regular rebedding touchup is also a good option in order to
keep your roof in good condition.
Repointing is another layer that is installed over the roof rebedding. This gives extra
strength to the tiles thus helping your roof to stay away from leaks and stops dust and grime from
entering your house.
Signs that your roof requires rebedding –
1) Roof leaks –
If your roof is continuously leaking during rainy season then it is a sure sign that
the bedding has weakened and your roof needs repairs.
2) Excess moisture –
Are you seeing moist patches on your ceiling? If yes, then these are signs
of a weakened roof because it is allowing tiny bits of water to seep into the house and
collect at the ceiling.
3) Loose or missing tiles –
If you notice that any of your roof tiles have loosened or gone
missing, then there is a strong probability that the bedding has worn out and needs repairs.
4) Granules in the gutter –
Another sign of roof rebedding getting weakened is if you are seeing
small concrete chips in your rain gutter. In such a case, immediate roof rebedding should be

products to execute a hassle free procedure. Your roof would require rebedding only if your old
bedding starts showing signs of deterioration.
Your professional roofing contractor will need to climb up on the roof of your house to inspect the roof thoroughly by checking the ridge and capping tiles.
Your contractor can also watch out for leaks because roof mortar damage usually begins at the roof
pointing which causes leaks.
Once the inspection is complete, you can do some research on the materials that are compatible
with roof rebedding. Depending on the requirement of your roof, popular materials such as
concrete, terracotta and colorbond tiles can be used to make your roof stronger and better looking.
