Clean Roof & Flexi Point

Clean Roof, Flexi Point & Seal

Cement Tile Roof Restoration

A popular option for those who don't want to re-colour but too tidy up the roof. Usually the tiles have good colour so the finish looks great, the pointing is matched to the tile colour. A clear sealer is another popular option as it prolongs the clean look of the tile for longer. The roof is assessed and quoted for its requirements.

  • Cleaning out behind chimneys
  • Cleaning out around skylights
  • Ridge cap preparation
  • Rebedding to ridge caps
  • Hip trays fitted in corners
  • Gables cut back in ready for repointing
  • Brackets, flashings & flue seals checked
  • Weep holes drilled as needed.

FLEXI POINT

StuPointing

Cleaned ridge caps & flexi pointed
Drilled weep holes cleared once flexi pointed

  • Flexi Pointing is applied by a trowel 3-5mm thick along the sides of the ridge caps & gable tiles to provide waterproof tile joins.
  • Flexible pre-mixed compound that can withstand harsh winds.
  • Specially formatted to flex with natural roof movement
  • Seals & holds ridge capping into place.
  • Finished to a smooth even layer.

  • Recommended for tiles with high colour & oxide still present
  • Ideal to keep the original tile colour for longer
  • Prolongs the clean tile for longer
  • Recommend on cement tiles or non-glazed tiles
