Roof beddings are sand or cement-based layers of mortar that serve as coating on your roof before the ridge capping process is started or an additional layer is applied. Having said this, it’s important to know why it is essential to have roof beddings and how it affects your safety and the safety of your home.

Why is roof bedding important?

Roof beddings allow fuller support for the application of the roof material you wish to place as an additional layer of protection for your home. It serves as a sort of binder or glue to hold everything together and to make sure that the materials on your roof are secure.

Why do I need to get a re-bedding?

Like any material used in construction, the bedding of mortar will deteriorate over time and needs to be maintained to make sure that it’s still serving its purpose. Roof beddings are prone to damage from extreme weather and temperature changes. So, it is vital that you regularly have yours checked by your local roofing experts.

As soon as the bed of mortar cracks, you risk the tiles and ridges of your roof falling off. And while replacing the bedding and materials yourself may seem like a good idea, the fact that you may fall off your roof at any time can make it dangerous. Statistics taken from the data of Safe Work Australia shows that in the period of 2003 to 2011 there were 25 deaths from falls off roofs. Make no mistake, even a 10 foot fall can be fatal.

In addition, re-bedding is not something you can easily do on your own. As such, it’s important that you let trained professionals handle the proper application of these mortar beddings to ensure your own safety and your convenience.

Materials that are compatible with roof beddings

There are plenty of materials that you can ask your local roof installation team to use. Depending on your needs, popular materials like concrete, terracotta, and colorbond tiles can be used to not only make your roof stronger but also look better. All of these materials also guarantee durability and long-lasting protection against the harsh elements of nature.

Placing roof beddings is important but won’t be as effective if you’re not knowledgeable in terms of the most efficient methods of preparation and actual application. Getting experts in the field will definitely eliminate any sort of headache you would otherwise get from trying to approach it alone.
