When the pointing is applied after the membrane you need an experienced tradesman’s touch. Someone with less experience and know how can turn this fine art into a disaster. We have the trade experience that matters. Watch and learn.

Roofline also offer a new look style roof restoration.  Known also as the point last roof restoration. This is the process where the pointing is applied after the roof re-colouring.

Stage 1.

The only visible difference between a new tiled roof and a restored roof is that the pointing on a restored roof is coated over using the same coloured membrane that is applied to the tiles. While this has benefits in sealing the pointing and protecting it from the elements some people have suggested it may look a little artificial.

Stage 2.

On a new roof the flexible pointing compound is of similar colour to the tiles but a slight variation in texture, finish and gloss level give a breaking contrast between the pointing and tiles.

Stage 3.

By repointing the roof last and replicating that of the new roof Roofline can provide a quality restoration while maintaining the contrast in colour that can only usually be achieved by installing a new roof.

Stage 4.

We also provide the flexibility to create your personal desired colour schemes. Two toned options where the ridgecaps are a completely different colour can be installed or restored which is particularly popular with a federation style look.

Stage 5.

We have also restored cement tiles to replicate that of an old style classic terracotta roof. We have installed finials and saddles as seen here on this cement tiled roof restored with a classic red pointing to highlight the contrast of the terracotta ridgecaps.
