Less maintenance and repair

Dry ridge roof systems have so many obvious advantages over wet ridge systems, that British Standards suggest they be used rather than the traditional method wherever practicable. The traditional method uses mortar to fix the tiles in place, however this tends to fall prey to erosion and fluctuating temperatures, which leads to a need for maintenance and repair as the mortar crumbles and cracks.

A perfect roof line

It is essential that the ridge tiles that form the roof’s peak are expertly installed as they are the first line of defence to stop water entering into the property. They also provide an attractively clean line to the edge of the roof. A dry ridge system is easy to install and can be fixed to the roof with a waterproof system of clamps, screws or clips instead of mortar.

The many benefits of a dry ridge roofing system

There are many benefits to a dry ridge roofing system, such as:

Installation is quicker and easier, which reduces costs.

Requires little to no maintenance – unlike a wet ridge system, which will require regular vigilance and repair to weathered mortar.

Far more durability and weatherproofing and better able to protect your property in strong winds, and it can expand and contract with fluctuations in temperature.

Has inbuilt ventilation, which enables moisture to escape.
