Repairing Ridge tiles

The ridge tiles on your roof are the most vulnerable to weather damage since they are the most visible. When adverse weather, such high winds, combines with the inevitable deterioration of mortar over time, the result might be loose ridge tiles. The slow erosion of your ridge tiles is caused by rainfall seeping in via tiny crevices, freezing, and cracking the mortar. When this occurs, fresh cement must be used to re-cement the tiles. Broken ridge tiles must be replaced with tiles of the same colour and profile, which may be difficult to find in older homes. If this is the case, it may be necessary to replace the whole ridge. At Leeds & District roofing, our team of experts have been repairing ridge tiles for over 30 years. We offer free advice and quotations on all roof repairs.

Re-Bed Ridge tiles

Leeds & District Roofing is available for ridge tile re-bedding projects. Aged materials, a poor mix, or attempts by previous roofers to over point or reface the original mix render ridge tile re-bedding necessary. While some Leeds roofing companies take short cuts, at Leeds & District Roofing, we damp ridge tiles before rebedding them into a tried and true mixture of materials including sand, sharp sand, and cement. As such, if you need a reputable roofing company in Leeds to re-bed your ridge tiles, don't hesitate to get in contact with us to discuss your options.

Dry Ridge Systems

Because of BS 5534, all newly constructed roofs must have a dry ridge system installed by the building control department. Please note that this rule does not apply to the repair of preexisting roofs or to certain listed and historic properties. Mortar-bonded ridge tiles' durability may be affected by a number of external influences. Dry ridge, on the other hand, ensures that the roof tiles stay put in the absence of a storm, drastically lowering the likelihood of damage. Dry ridging doesn't need any upkeep as mortar does. It is normal for mortar mixes to deteriorate with time, although this might happen more faster than expected.
Covert roof ventilation is another option made possible by dry ridge. This, in turn, helps to avoid the formation of potentially hazardous condensation. Condensation is bad for your roof's health and may lead to leaks, damage, and mould if left unchecked; dry ridge is preferable.
