We offer dry verge services in Cardiff and the surrounding areas. Elite Construction Services also provides installation, repair and maintenance services of dry verges. Mortar pointing is not required for dry verges and ridges. Usually, mortar shrinks as time elapses and eventually this allows water to seep in through the cracks in the roof.
Dry verges and ridges are generally manufactured for specific tile profiles as they fit in perfectly.
As time elapses, the roof tends to develop gaps and deteriorate with age, especially along the edges of tiled roofs. But the best aspect about dry verge products is that it offers a perfect finishing so that the edges come out clean without any gaps, giving it a clean and well-finished look.
It is manufactured using PVC-U and uses a clip fixing system of end caps to allow for easy installation. It is weather proof, maintenance-free and is available in different colours so that it blends with the tiles and colouring of your roof.
It can be used on any new build roofs as well as existing verge renewal. It is the best method to fix the verge tiles mechanically and it does not have any risk of damage due to wind or the seepage of water.
Advantages of Dry Ridge System
- It does not blow off: among other things that influence the lifespan or bond of the ridge tiles, the dry ridge will not blow off under normal conditions and there will be no risk associated during storms. You will be free from risks such as the tiles falling on the floor
- Maintenance: although mortar mixes tend to degrade with time, there is no maintenance required for Dry Ridge systems
- Ventilation: Dry ride provides excellent ventilation in the roof space and it does not allow any condensation build-ups on your roof
- Movement: you may be shocked to know that roofs move! The main reason is due to the vibrations in the surroundings or through natural contraction and expansion. In the case of dry ridges, this risk is eliminated too
