What is Roof Pointing?
Roof pointing is a finishing layer that goes on top of the roof bedding to complete the joins between the ridges and roof and create a sturdy hold for the tiles. The pointing helps seal your roof and prevents water and dirt from getting inside your property. In the past, pointing materials consisted of cement mortar for the roof tiles.
But modern roofing techniques now allow for flexible, pre-mixed and pre-coloured pointing solutions. These pointing compounds are perfect for properties in the UK as they expand and contract with the ever-changing temperature and weather conditions.

How Old Pointing Affects Your Property
Whether it’s a roof, property or brick wall, it’s essential that the pointing remains in good nick. The job of the pointing is to finish off the bricks or stone, increase support and prevent water from entering your home. If your property is suffering from gutter issues or damaged leadwork, then the consistent flow of water can erode away the original mortar.
Once this happens, your property becomes in danger of water ingress. This can lead to all manner of damp and mould issues, not to mention the structural integrity of your building. Or if it’s your garden wall, then bad pointing can lead to it crumbling away over time.
And as you can see in the next video, Phil is chopping away at an old stone wall as he explains how to repoint it effectively.
