Dry Ridge & Dry Verge Insulations

A dry ridge system is a method of using screws or other mechanical fixings to attach ridge tiles to a roof. This eliminates the need to use mortar for bonding. Screws or other mechanical fixings attach clamps between the joints of each and every roof tile, which then clamp the tiles to the roof. Underneath the screws lie waterproof unions which catch and disperse rainfall that falls on them.

  • Easier to install, straightforward and hassle-free than its mortar counterpart.
  • They are sturdy. During high winds or storms, the likelihood of dry ridge system tiles blowing off is very unlikely and this therefore reduces the risk of damage to your roof, and anything below your house that a tile could blow onto.
  • Low maintenance. Whilst mortar can degrade over time, dry ridge systems retain their quality for years to come without the need for maintenance.
  • Dry ridge systems allow for better and more flexible movement.
  • Better ventilation properties. The dry ridge system can help combat buildup of condensation by offering ventilation properties.

Dry Verge Systems

These are the areas at the edge of your roof (above the bargeboards), which traditionally have a cement infill to hold your tiles in place and prevent water.
