HYTILE Flexible Pointing
Money Back Guarantee!

Since the first flexible pointing compound came on to the market around a decade ago many new brands have appeared. All with the promise of offering something special. Quite a number have not lived up to that promise, while others have increased their market share.

Over this time Hytile has sold the majority, if not all of the most popular brands on the market and we have noted very carefully the comments from our customers on the merits or otherwise of all these differing brands. They have provided important observations on each product’s ease of handling, durability, compliance to current regulations, colour options, U.V. resistance, price, and value.

Armed with this feedback we asked a leading flexible pointing manufacturer to construct a flexible pointing compound which would take account of this knowledge.

Point up a roof with “HYTILE Flexible Pointing” and if you are not completely satisfied we will refund your money.

mar06-3The result is “HYTILE Flexible Pointing” a terrific product that has great ease of handling, is durable and U.V. resistant, complies with current regulations and is available in a range of colours.

We began selling “HYTILE Flexible Pointing” just before Christmas with a money back guarantee. We also sell all the other main flexible pointing compounds such as: Ridgebond, Mortastic, Pointworks, Elasto-max and Ezy Point, however, since its introduction HYTILE Flexible Pointing has outsold all other brands.


mar06-4Scott White from Proline Roofing says “I love it. It’s easy to trowel. It holds better in the dry. It’s easy to pick up the dags and it’s great for use in “

Quickset Scott is also a big rap for Quickset.Quickset is sprayed onto fresh pointing to protect it in the event of rain. He tells us that he was on a roof when it suddenly started to rain.

“I grabbed the Quickset, sprayed the pointing, and even though it bucketed down for 20 minutes the pointing was fine.”

He says he gets around 2 – 3 houses per spray bottle.
