Advanced Roofline NI – Dry Verge Systems
What are Dry Verge Systems?
Dry verge systems are used when roof tiles finish on an open edge. It covers the tiles on the gable of the house and can be especially useful where cement has became cracked or loosened. The verge system laps over the roof tile and is secured simply onto your fascia board.
The verge of the roof is probably its most vulnerable part due to exposure to wind and water penetration. The purpose of dry verge is to protect exposed roof tiles and to help secure this line. With the benefit being that as well as protection, it provides an attractive low maintenance finish to your roofing.
Dry Verge VS. Wet Verge
If you live in an older house or have a gable roof then you may have ‘wet verge’ roofing. This is when the outer ends of your verge units are fixed with mortar to prevent water or pests getting in. The problem with wet verge systems is that they’re not very durable.
Mortar can’t tolerate the wear and tear that comes from extreme weather conditions or the natural movement within properties. And even after short periods of time, mortar can become cracked and begin to deteriorate.
Advantages of Dry Verge
In comparison to wet verge, dry verge offers easy installation. With many units that can be fitted to either side of your roofing, so you’ll only require one verge system instead of two.
At Advanced Roofline, we can take care of all your dry verge needs with everything from supply to quick and easy installation.
High quality dry verge units are made from durable plastic or often uPVC which can dramatically increase your roof’s lifespan. It’s also very low maintenance so once you have it installed there’ll be no further cost or hassle. Unlike wet verge, your new system will not deteriorate or crack overtime.
Stops leakages and Wind Uplift
The main purpose of verge installation is to stop rainwater, damps and pests from getting in your home. Dry verge can do this effectively as it comes mechanically fixed and with each individual unit screwed in, for optimum results.
Moreover, dry verge protects your roof from wind uplift meaning that your tiles and slates are completely secure. It will help to stabilise the most vulnerable parts of your roofline so you don’t have to.
Allows for Natural Movement
Our homes will always have some natural degree of movement and your roofing needs to accommodate this. The uPVC material used in dry verges allows for this movement and will not become damaged during the process.
