tile roof question


Hello?

How are you?

The mortar at the ridge of my tile roof cracked or disappeared. How do I fix it?

Thanks.

I've never seen a tile roof where it (or a substitute) wasn't used.

Either remove the compromised mortar and replace it with new mortar or use a substitute. There are numerous caulk tube products available for filling small gaps between pieces or there are pre-mixed "ropes" in various colors for setting the caps if your trowel trade skills are lacking. You'll need to go to a true roofing supply (not a big box) to find most of these products.

The dry ridge system is getting popular here.
