What is Re-Pointing and Does Your Roof Need It?
There are many benefits to having your roof re-pointed. It can be a relatively inexpensive way to improve the appearance of your home, add value to your property, increase energy efficiency, and even save you money on your utility bills.
If you’re not sure if your roof needs re-pointing or not, read this blog post to find out what exactly it means and why you should have it done.
What is re-pointing?
Re-pointing refers to the process of re-pointing the roof shingles of a house. Roof re-pointing is not just a quick and easy fix for a damaged roof. It is a great way to extend the life of your roof and save hundreds of dollars in repair costs.
Why do you need re-pointing?
If you’ve ever looked at the roof of your home you may have noticed that it has a few areas that are uneven. When this happens it can cause water to leak into your home, which can destroy your furniture and damage your belongings and cause leaks in your ceiling.
How Much Does It Cost to Re-point A Roof?
The cost of roofing repairs can vary, depending on what kind of roof you have, how old it is, and the condition of the roof itself. Re-pointing a roof is a cost-effective way to give your roof the much needed care that it deserves. It’s also a great way to make a good impression on your neighbors and customers when you have a new roof installed.
Re-pointing a Roof
Re-pointing a roof is a relatively simple process that consists of replacing the existing tiles with a new set of roofing materials. The process is quite similar to what you would do when replacing a door. In fact, this is one of the most common repair projects for homeowners.
How much does it cost?
The cost depends on the size of your roof. Some jobs are simple and some are very complex. You should be aware that if you are trying to estimate the cost of re-pointing your roof, there are some key points to take into account.
The first point to remember is that the labour costs for re-pointing a roof are normally going to be higher than a new roof. Why is this so? Because the job involves dismantling the old tiles and the old surface, which is normally a dirty and dangerous job. In addition, the new material will need to be cut to size, fitted, and grouted. This is usually a messy job.
Reviews of our roof re-pointing
I had repairs to the roof including replacing clips above garage, several tiles replaced, repointing of ridge tiles, roof cleaning and painting done. From an old tatty roof in bad repair, I now have a roof that looks like new. Am so pleased with the job and the way that Wayne conducts and oversees his business. He was professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Allcoast to anyone who needs their roof renovated and repaired.
Wayne and his crew completed a number of jobs for me including replacing a rotted soffit, ridge pointing, painting the front of my house and I also had one of his guys install gutter guard a year ago which has kept the leaves out ever since. All work was completed to a high standard and the advice on which colours to use on my house was appreciated. I have no hesitation in recommending these roofers.
