Dry Roofing Products

An increasing number of homeowners are turning to dry fix roofing because of the advantages it offers in terms of security, cost and installation.

We ensure that Dry Roofing Products are fitted properly, will withstand our changeable weather and as they are fixed to the structure of roof and are less likely to blow off.  

They also allow the natural movement of the building unlike the 'wet' mortar which cracks and crumbles and does not allow the natural movement of the building.  

Dry ridge also allows a little ventilation to prevent condensation.

Dry ridge also has a lining which allows the rain to disperse to the roof.

Dry Ridge Installations

Before

The original mortar based ridge tiles needed repairs and have been upgraded to the dry ridge system.

The old ridge tiles were removed and all the mortar cleared off in preparation for the new system.

Once the mortar etc. has been cleared away, a lining is installed.

The ridge tiles are held in place by way of a mechanically fixed system.

This gives the ridge tiles more stability.

After

Dry Fix Systems

Dry Ridge
Dry Ridge has been designed to give the appearance of a traditional bedded ridge, but with all the benefits that a modern dry ridge system provides, such as secure mechanical fixing and appropriate ventilation.

The Dry Ridge system incorporates ventilation strips to support the ridges and provides high level ventilation.

Ridge unions provide an efficient seal between each ridge and give the appearance of a 10mm mortar joint. To complete the system and to enhance aesthetics, profile fillers are supplied for profiled tile types. The fillers click into the ventilation strips and both are marked to ensure correct orientation.
