The term “rebed and point” is used when the ridge cap mortar has deteriorated beyond the point of resealing. When this occurs the mortar requires removal with the tiles and caps being cleaned free of the old mortar. The caps are then re-bedded back down into position with 4 to 1 ratio sand and cement mix. The caps edges are then wire-brushed when dry, removing ant bedding from the caps edges and tiles ensuring a clean surface for the flexible pointing to fasten to. The caps are then pointed (sealed) with new tinted flexible pointing.
