Roof rebedding & repointing

By TailgaterHater - 8 January 2015 3

Just want to get an update from the Canberra community about who to avoid and who people can recommend to do rebedding and repointing of a tile roof. In particular, I would like to hear from people who had this done a few years ago, who did the work and what is the condition of the roof now.

If you are a company that do this work, please do not contribute (or get your family/employees to comment either).

What’s Your opinion?

I had my federation style house restored by National Capital Roofing. Brendan was excellent. The roof had lots of broken tiles and it was leaking into our lounge room. I rang a few Companies but Brendan at National Capital Roofing was professional, genuine and his quote was competitive. He cleaned out my gutters and downpipes as well which made a huge difference. He was a little busy (I suppose because he is so good) but after a week and a half it was complete and it was well worth the wait. I have had no leaks or problems since.
I am going to get him back in the Summer to paint my roof, I have seen some of his work around Red Hill and it looks fantastic. I recommend Brendan from National Capital Roofing.

Had our roof in Kambah repointed by Becker & Pestrucci (0408 128 961, sharonpestrucci@bigpond.com). The people who built the house didn’t do a very good job. No mortar between the ridge tiles (so we had leaking in strong horizontal winds) and the ridge cap mortar had been applied in winter and had frozen not setting correctly. Took a couple of days and was very happy with the repairers. I think it was about $3,000. They used a white mortar undercoat, which might have created problems if it had rained (but it didn’t)!

Had a house and detached garage done by these guys about 3 years ago: http://lookuproof.com.au/ . Good price, done with minimal hassle, and all still looking fine… honestly I think it’s hard to mess up the job these days with modern mortars.

A word of warning. I also had the job quoted by ReACT Roofing and found they had borderline intimidating sales tactics. Quoted the job on the spot but then said I had to sign up to it right then and there if I wanted them to do it. They would also not give me anything in writing unless I accepted the job, and wanted to charge some crazy price (hundreds of dollars) just for a copy of the quote.
