Ridge Capping, Rebedding & Pointing

Adelaide tiled roofs are a durable, long lasting roof covering, but over time they are subjected to the constant extremes of the elements – wind, rain, baking sun and chilling cold. This eventually causes the mortar to break down to the point where it is reduced to a crumbling mass.

Movement of the roof also causes the mortar to eventually crack and break adhesion between the tiles and the ridge capping. A major cause of movement is the constant expansion and contraction of supporting timbers as they react to the changing extremes in temperature.

Weight and gravity also cause movement. Tiled roofs are heavy, which puts enormous pressure on supporting timbers. Over time, timbers can sag and even crack or break under the load. Gravity also creates a subtle but constant force that inherently tends to ‘drag’ the tiles slightly down the slope of the roof.

Left long enough, the entire ridge capping can become loose and unstable. The key to good roof maintenance is to repair the ridge capping long before the risk of water damage to your home is ever realised.

The term “rebed and point” is used when the ridge cap mortar has deteriorated beyond the point of resealing. When this occurs the mortar requires removal with the tiles and caps being cleaned free of the old mortar. The caps are then re-bedded back down into position with 3 to 1 ratio sand and cement mix. The caps edges are then wire-brushed when dry, removing ant bedding from the caps edges and tiles ensuring a clean surface for the flexible pointing to fasten to. The caps are then pointed (sealed) with new tinted flexible pointing.

DJK Roofing have been providing services to the insurance industry for 30 years.  Our services include everything from emergency damaged roof calls out, carrying out onsite make-safes, independant roof inspections, roof reports and cover all areas of tile roofing.

When it comes to Adelaide roofs and gutters, it is best to review your home insurance policy. We are aware that there are many differences across providers and policies, however, we have found that there are common trends in the outcomes of claims when it comes to your roof and gutters (and any damages that may have subsequently resulted).

You should always refer to your product disclosure statement or insurance provider directly to discuss your specific circumstances and what your policy covers.

Storm / Fire / Burglary / Vandalism / Damage to Roof

Typically, most insurance providers WILL provide coverage if damage has been caused to your roof or gutters due to storm, fire, burglary or vandalism or some sort of accident like a truck reversing into your roof and/or gutters. It is common practice however, to only repair the “affected area.” If the wind blows your ridge capping or roof tiles off, your insurance provider will most likely only cover those that were actually damaged.

Insurance assessors will come and assess the internal damagae and also do a roof inspection to see what caused the leak.  " Unfortunately the roof repairs are not storm related and are a maintenance issue". Just because your roof or gutters leak during a storm does not necessarily mean that you will be covered. The question at hand is: did the storm actually create the roof and/or gutter issue? OR was the issue already there and you only noticed the problem when the storm hit?

Deterioration of Time / Maintenance of the Roof

Overtime your roof will begin to deteriorate. Generally, speaking roofs will require maintenance after 15-20 years. We are also unfortunately, finding newer homes that are less than 10 years old that require roof maintenance. This is common for homes that have originally been completed in a hurry by underpaid contract roofers.

If your roof or gutters have deteriorated and then subsequently leak during a storm, you probably WILL NOT be covered for the roof or gutter repairs. The reason this is not covered is because the storm itself did not create the issue and instead it has been caused gradually overtime. Insurance providers place the responsibility of home maintenance with the owner. This includes your roof and gutters.

Deterioration includes:

  • rusted valleys or roof sheets
  • broken seals on roof penetrations
  • cracking of mortar along ridge capping tiles
  • tiles becoming porous
  • leaves and debris blocking water flow or cracked/sagging flashings.

Some examples of roof maintenance issues are:

  • blocked gutters
  • rusty roof or rusty gutters
  • blocked flashings
  • leaves and debris on roofs

Most insurance providers will however give you the benefit of the doubt, so to speak, when it comes to covering the internal “resultant” damages. Many claim outcomes will require you to first fix the roof at your cost, then pay the policy excess, and once this has been completed the resultant damage may be covered i.e. the painting and plastering of the “affected” ceiling.

Why is My Roof Leaking?

Leaking roofs are as common as the number of rainy days in Adelaide. 

Roofs leaks can create no end of troubles. Adelaide roofs have to withstand heat, cold, wind, rain, hail and more which can cause havoc. Roofs leaks can create no end of troubles.

We have spend many years repairing leaking roofs in Adelaide generally know the causes of all roof leaks. 

The eight most common causes of a roof leaks in Adelaide are:-

1) Skylights:

As soon as holes are cut on a roof to put skylights in, the natural waterproof nature of roofs are violated. Some skylight installations leak the day they are cut into a roof. This is usually the result of a poor selection of skylights or a faulty installation. Then during its life, leaf blockage is the usual reason for skylight leaks. Finally, the life of a skylight is usually less than the roof – so old rusty skylights leak and will need replacement.  

2) Broken roof tiles:

Roof tiles do not often break by themselves. If you have overhanging trees, falling branches will break tiles. As soon as you let people walk on your tile roof, there is a danger of broken tiles. Children like throwing things and these things can break fragile roof tiles.  

3) Rusty or blocked valleys:

While tile roofs do not rust, there are valleys on most roofs and in the old days, they just used galvanised metal valleys. These have a 20 to 30 years life … so rusted valleys are quite common on Adelaide roofs.

Leaves and valleys do not go together. If you have leaves crammed into your valley, a sudden downpour will create a dam. A rush of water will spill over the edges of the valley and you will see water gushing out of your ceiling…

4) Faulty tile ridge capping:

The bedding and pointing under tile ridge capping crack over time. Water seeps into the cracks. 

5) Chimneys:

A chimney is another hole on the roof that needs to be waterproofed correctly. The flashings around chimneys deteriorate and often cause leaks. Chimney pots break.

6) Faulty flashings:

The edges of roofs have to be waterproofed by flashings. It takes a lot of roofing experience to be able to detail complicated roof flashings so that they look good and do not leak. If a new roof leaks, then the roofer usually has made a mistake on the roof flashing. We can usually gauge the quality of the roof installation by how the flashings are finished off.

7) Rusty roofs:

This reason may seem quite obvious. It is easy to see if a roof is rusty. But it takes a while between when a roof begins to rust and when holes form and water starts dripping. Also, often, the rusty areas are very localised and hidden. In these instances, only close inspection will reveal the rust spots at laps and under flashings.

 8) Blocked gutters: 

Blocked box gutters can cause havoc if there are no overflows to act as a relief valve system. If you experience flooding inside your house and you have a box gutter – then it is quite likely a blocked outlet in your box gutter. 

Normal Eaves gutters are often left full of leaves and this will start a nice garden in the gutter as well as overflowing gutters. They do not normally cause problems with leaks into the house. The exception is when the eaves extend over windows. Overflowing water will run along the eaves and fall onto the head of the window – causing a cascade of water along the inside of the window.
