Ridge Tile Repairs
Ridge tiles have been used in roof construction for thousands of years although the materials used are different.
They are an important part of the structure of a roof; their function is to keep the rain out, at the very peak of the roof and along the all-important edges.
Most homes, at some stage will require ridge tile repairs, do not try to do this yourself, it is difficult and dangerous, call your local, trusted roofing experts.
Ridge tiles are either angular (used with slates) or ½ round (used with tiles) and are cemented into position although modern ridge tiles are sometimes nailed into position or a simple snap system is used. Ridge tiles should overlap on to the tiles or slates by approximately 70 -75 mm.
If a ridge tile needs to be renewed because of sustained damage it needs to be done properly. To begin with you will need to mix a strong cement, remove the old ridge tiles, original cement and any lose bits and pieces. Now cement the new tile in position ensuring that it is level and well bedded into the cement.
Please note, this is a general description on how to replace the ridge tile, not a building lesson. As you can see this is not a job for an amateur and it is recommended that you employ a professional roofer who will have the correct equipment and insurance to do the job.
