A dry verge system is used to fix the edge of a roof where tiles meet the gable end. Traditionally, this area was fixed with mortar, but over time, the mortar can crack and degrade, leaving the roof edge exposed to the elements. A dry verge system eliminates the need for mortar, making it a more durable and low-maintenance solution.
A dry ridge system, on the other hand, is used to fix the ridge of a roof where two sides meet. Again, this area was traditionally fixed with mortar, but a dry ridge system provides a more durable and long-lasting solution.
Another benefit of dry verge and ridge systems is that they prevent debris from falling onto lower roofs, conservatories, and vehicles. This can help prevent damage to your property and save you money on repairs.
By installing a dry verge or ridge system, you could extend your roof guarantee by up to 50%. This is because the lifespan of traditional mortar is typically around 10 years, whereas dry verge and ridge systems can last for decades.
The more mortar you can eliminate from your roof, the better. By installing a dry verge or ridge system, you can reduce the amount of mortar on your roof and make it more durable and long-lasting.
