A new dry verge roof edge can transform your outdated, tired looking roof edges into a clean and new looking roof.
Over a period of time, all roofs will show signs and symptoms of ageing which then become vulnerable to having gaps between roof tiles, a new dry verge roof edge will offer that finishing touch to any roof. Dry ridge is the term for a technique used for mechanically fixing ridge tiles or hip ridge tiles to a roof without traditional sand and cement mortar.
IS DRY RIDGE ANY GOOD ?
In short, yes. The fact is they are now a building control requirement on all new roofs since BS 5534 was announced, although repairs to existing roof coverings are exempt, as are certain listed and period properties under the right circumstances.
Will not blow off
There are various things that can affect the lifespan or bond of mortar bonded ridge tiles. Dry ridge however (as long as it has been mounted correctly) will not blow off under usual conditions, greatly lowering the risk from weather damage.
Believe it or not, roof coverings move. This can be through vibration (near main roads or train tracks) or through natural expansion and contraction. Dry ridge allows for all kinds of movement. No more ridge tiles landing on the ground, vehicle or conservatory after high winds.
These edges are made of PVC-U, they’re completely weather resistant, they come in various colours and once put in they don’t require maintenance.
