If the cement of the ridge capping is not too damaged then ‘FlexiPoint’ or ‘Selleys Point Works’ is used in repointing the ridge caps. This product is applied on the old cement and bonds to it. It dries extremely hard, cementing the ridge caps to the tiles but unlike cement, it maintains flex so as not to crack with the gradual movement of the roof.


If the cement is too damaged and crumbling then the pointing will not stick to it, so it must be replaced. Ridge caps are then lifted up and all old cement removed and new cement is laid down as foundation for the ridge cap. After the cement has tried the pointing then goes over the top to hold the cement nice and tight to the ridge cap and roof, preventing the cement from cracking over time with the movement of the roof.

Replacing tiles

To fix your leaking roof, you may need to find a tile that is cracked and leaking and then replacing it. Tiles may look the same but there are many different types and makes of cement and terracotta tiles. A new replacement tile must be the exact same one, not in colour, but in type and make of the tile. Different tiles will not sit correctly with other tiles and will nearly always leak if incorrect tile is used.

Tiles fitted incorrectly will also cause leaking.

Caution: Silicon is popular to use in fixing broken tiles when it comes to the DIY fix up. This is a temporary fix, the silicon deteriorates rapidly, leaving you with an again leaking roof
