Terracotta clay roof tiles will become covered in moss and lichen over time, this completely changes the appearance of your homes roof. The moisture that builds up in this growth can potentially weaken the roof tiles over lengthy periods of time. The lichen or moss growth can also build up and cause blockages in the water channels on the tiles. This will cause an internal leak resulting in ceiling or structural damage if left unchecked.
RIDGE CAP REPAIRS
Flexible pointing is a water based polymer compound that adheres to roofing tiles and ridge caps on tile roofs. It seals the ridge cap to the roof tile or gable end. It’s main purpose is to keep moisture out thereby protecting the roofing system and underlying bedding. Having the added benefit of being flexible means it moves with the roof over time and will not crack as quickly as traditional mortar based concrete pointing.
Often in our roof repairs we find valley irons that are deteriorated and rust causing leaks through small pin holes to large rust holes. It is important to replace these valley irons to ensure the roof remains water tight and is free from leaks. Valley leaks are the biggest cause of water damage to Perth homes during winter. Your Roof valleys can be supplied in zinc or Colorbond colours to suit the existing roof colours of your home.
