Are you tired of having to re-point the borders of your tiled roof?
Our systems are the only long-term, maintenance-free answer to the problem of tiled roof edges. We install the most up-to-date uPVC Dry Verge systems, which may be used to weather-proof practically any form of tiled or slated roof edge.
Cement infill is used on the borders of tiled roofs above the bargeboards. This tiled edge cracks and deteriorates, allowing the cement to fall out (perhaps onto you or your vehicle!) and the edge to become unstable in heavy winds.
Dry Verge is far superior to cement in terms of appearance and will keep your tiles in place even in the most extreme conditions. Our proprietary Dry Verge installation procedure includes extra fasteners for maximum protection and offers a lasting and perfectly secure edge to your roof.
Dry Verge systems, which are ideal for slated and small-tile roofs, are also available.
We carefully remove all existing expired cement from the tiled edge before installing Dry Verge, since this just helps to trap moisture, causing the tile battens to deteriorate. This has the added benefit of enhancing ventilation, which will aid in the preservation of the tile battens. We trim the tiles to the exact overhang that the Dry Verge device manufacturer specifies. We then inspect the existing tile battens and roofing felt for damage and make any necessary repairs. Then, for further strength and security, we add another longitudinal tanalised timber batten. Finally, after all of this meticulous planning, we secure the Dry Verge units in position.
We can also maintain your RIDGE TILES in three ways:
Your existing clay ridge tiles can be removed, cleaned, rebedded, and repointed using the traditional manner. However, as the weather loosens the ridge tiles over time, this will always require periodic replenishment, necessitating the operation to be repeated every few years. A roll-out dry ridge system, which keeps your existing clay tiles and fixes them to the ridge beam of your roof with unique fixings and clamping plates, is a more secure solution.
By permanently removing your present clay ridge tiles and replacing them with PVCu ridge tiles that are fastened directly into your roof’s ridge beam. This not only eliminates the need for future maintenance, but it also enhances the airflow in your loft area, lowering the risk of condensation. This is appropriate for both hipped roofs and the main ridge at the peak.
Our skilled teams of professional licensed joiners complete all of our installations to achieve the highest quality standards on every assignment.
