Dry ridge and verge systems have been designed over the past few years from companies such as Marley, Klober, Manthorpe and several other companies. These units have been designed to make roofs mortar free and in turn maintenance free.
PVC dry verge is specially designed to block any gaps that could permit birds or large insects entering the roof space. It makes an attractive, no-maintenance edging to any roof in either slate or tile. It can be fitted to existing buildings to replace failing mortar, cover any unsightly gaps and stop any falling debris. They can be used on new builds, existing properties and the units come in a range of colours Blue, Black, Brown and White Also available are a number of clay and concrete verge tiles. These are a similar system to the PVC dry verge but the gable end tile has a finish which come over the gable end.
If installed correctly with eave closures and cap ends, dry verge will be maintenance free for over 10 years
