Dry Verges Specialist
A dry verges system offers a safe and secure method for fixing interlocking tiles without the use of mortar. A roof verge is a name given to the outer edge of a roof, usually along a home’s gable end, where the roof ‘meets’ the wall below. In most Irish homes, this verge was traditionally completed using a sand and cement mortar bond – known as a ‘wet verge’ roof.
Roof verges are designed to prevent moisture, insects, and animals, from gaining access to the inner roof. Despite their important function though, wet verges are usually the most vulnerable part of your home’s roof due to constant and prolonged exposure to both rain and wind penetration, causing them to gradually deteriorate over time.
To combat this common problem, at Irish Roofing Repairs we have a number of tried and tested ‘dry verge’ systems that we can install in order to create a highly durable, all-weatherproof verge for your home’s roofing.
What are dry verges
Dry verge systems, also known as dry-fixing, are roofing systems that use uPVC dry verge caps designed to easily interlock. These systems are clipped over the edge of roof slates or tiles, protecting and securing them, to prevent water, wind, or unwanted pests from entering your home’s inner roof space. These systems add a nice finishing touch to any roof and once they’re fitted, need little maintenance other than simple cleaning once every few years.
Dry Ridge Systems
Although similar to dry verge systems in that mortar is NOT used, dry ridge systems refer to the installation of a new roof by mechanically fixing ridge tiles, or hip ridge tiles, to the roof with stainless steel screws, as opposed to using a sand and cement mortar.
Why Choose a Dry Verges Systems?
The roof is the most exposed part of any building. Over time, exposure to the elements can cause the development of hairline cracks in ‘wet verges’ made from a mortar. This can inevitably lead to costly roofing maintenance if left unchecked.
As an alternative, dry verge systems are a quick, easy, and convenient method of fixing damaged verges on your home’s roof. As well as that, they’re also a great way to transform any old, tired-looking roof edges.
At Irish Roofing Repairs, we can supply and fit high-quality, cost-effective dry verges systems that can help to better protect your home’s roof from the elements, as well as increase overall roof strength in the process.
