What is a verge roof system

A verge roof system is installed at the edges of your roof, on the end walls between the edges of your roof tiles and the gable. The verge performs a vital protective function as it protects the relatively vulnerable edges of your roof tiles, particularly from heavy rain, frost and high winds. It is essential to ensure that your verge roof systems are durable and well-maintained.

More modern methods

Traditionally, the verge roof system was put into place using mortar and this is known as a wet verge system – however, more modern methods include a dry verge roofing system, which doesn’t use mortar and has several advantages. A dry verge roofing system is formed of interlocking components that form a waterproof, weather-resistant seal to protect the edge of your roof. They are easy to install, extremely durable and require little to no maintenance.

Upgrade the appearance and durability of your roof

If the existing roof is in good condition, and the slates or tiles are firmly fixed, a dry verge system can simply be fixed over the top, which is great if you don’t want to entirely replace your roof, and you just want to upgrade its appearance and durability. A new dry verge system will improve the appearance of your home, as it will provide a seamless and neat finish to your roof.
