Dry Verge Systems Advantages

A dry verge system is a popular roofing solution that provides a number of advantages over traditional verge solutions. In this blog, we will delve into what a dry verge system is and the various benefits it offers.

What is a Dry Verge System?

A dry verge system is a type of roofing solution that is used to provide protection to the edges of a roof. It is called a “dry” verge system because it does not require the use of mortar or other wet materials in its installation. Instead, it relies on interlocking plastic or UPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) units that fit together to form a continuous verge.

The dry verge system is typically installed on the gable end of a roof and covers the area where the roof tiles meet the gable wall. It is designed to provide protection against wind and rain, as well as to improve the overall appearance of the roof.

Advantages of a Dry Verge System

There are several advantages to using a dry verge system, including:

  1. Ease of installation: One of the biggest advantages of a dry verge system is that it is relatively easy to install. The units simply need to be snapped into place, without the need for wet materials or special tools. This means that the installation process can be completed quickly and efficiently, saving time and money.
  2. Durability: Dry verge systems are made from high-quality materials that are designed to withstand the elements. The interlocking units are strong and durable, and they are resistant to cracking, fading, and warping. This means that a dry verge system can provide long-lasting protection for your roof.
  3. Low maintenance: Unlike traditional verge solutions that require regular maintenance and repair, a dry verge system requires minimal maintenance. The units are easy to clean and do not require painting or other forms of upkeep. This makes them a cost-effective and hassle-free solution for protecting your roof.
  4. Improved appearance: A dry verge system can significantly improve the appearance of your roof. The units are available in a range of colours, so you can choose the one that best matches your home’s exterior. Additionally, the clean lines and smooth finish of the units create a sleek and modern look that can enhance the overall curb appeal of your home.
  5. Better protection: A dry verge system provides better protection for your roof than traditional verge solutions. The interlocking units create a continuous verge that is more resistant to wind and rain. This means that your roof is less likely to suffer damage from these elements, which can help to extend its lifespan and save you money on repairs.
  6. Greater flexibility: Another advantage of a dry verge system is that it offers greater flexibility in terms of design. The units can be easily cut to fit around corners and other irregular shapes, allowing you to achieve a seamless and professional finish. This can be particularly useful if you have a unique or irregularly shaped roof.

In conclusion, a dry verge system is a highly effective and convenient solution for protecting the edges of your roof. It is easy to install, durable, low maintenance, and can significantly improve the appearance of your home. Additionally, it provides better protection against wind and rain, and offers greater flexibility in terms of design. If you are considering a new roofing solution, a dry verge system is definitely worth considering.

Due to the range of advantages seamless aluminium gutters offer, they are well-liked by roofers, gutter installers and homeowners alike. We’ll outline just some of our top benefits below.

Easy Installation

Gutters can be made from various materials such as copper or steel, however, aluminium gutters, are the perfect solution if you’re looking for something that can be installed safely, quickly and easily. Seamless aluminium gutters are made some a lightweight material, meaning they’re easy to manoeuvre and therefore even easier to install. Made to fit the exact dimensions of your home, you will receive the ‘perfect fit’ every time because when a gutter fits well, it functions well!

Low Maintenance

 Seamless aluminium gutters require minimal maintenance, a benefit I’m sure many of us enjoy. These aluminium gutters won’t require any further painting, and with our hydro power coat they are also scratch resistant meaning this product is completely maintenance free! Like with any gutters, now and again they will need a little clearing out of leaves and general debris. However, this won’t occur half as often because as we mentioned these aluminium gutters are ‘seamless’ so, there are no joints or fasteners for lots of debris to collect and cause any damage or blockages. They really are the perfect fit and forget product.   


 Aluminium is a rust-free material meaning these gutters are highly durable and long-lasting. With no joints or fasteners, there’s no need for any repairs once again highlighting the low maintenance capability of this product. A great option for the long-term, seamless aluminium gutters typically last between 20-35 years depending on the local climate/environment. Although here in Northern Ireland we can often face four seasons in one day, seamless aluminium gutters are a strong and highly durable product meaning they’re a very cost-effective choice, perfect for the times we’re living in!

Pleasant visual appearance

Seamless aluminium gutters are sleek and very neutral in appearance making them an extremely versatile product. No matter what style of property you have from old country cottages to modern masterpieces, aluminium gutters will complement any building or any design you have.

Co.Cavan - 125 Houses

Full Replacement of Home Exterior Features in Co. Cavan for 125 Houses


Advanced Roofline NI is a specialist roofing and exterior services company based in Northern Ireland. In late 2022, the company completed a project in Co. Cavan, where it replaced the windows, doors, gutters, and dry verge systems in 125 houses in the area. This case study highlights the process of the project and the results achieved.

Project Scope:

The project involved a complete overhaul of the home exterior features of 125 houses in Co. Cavan. Advanced Roofline NI was tasked with replacing the old and damaged PVC double glazed windows with new energy-efficient windows that offered better insulation and noise reduction. Composite front and back doors were also installed to replace the old wooden doors, which were prone to warping and rotting.

In addition, the company installed seamless aluminium gutters to replace the old PVC gutters, which were prone to clogging and leaking. The installation of dry verge systems was also carried out to ensure that the roof tiles were firmly secured and protected against wind uplift and water ingress.

Project Implementation:

The project was implemented in two phases. The first phase involved a survey of the 125 houses to assess the extent of the work required. The survey was carried out by a team of experienced professionals from Advanced Roofline NI who used the latest technology to measure and record the dimensions of the houses.

After the survey, the company developed a detailed plan and presented it to the homeowners for approval. The plan included a breakdown of the work to be carried out, the materials to be used, and the timeline for completion.

The second phase of the project involved the actual installation of the new windows, doors, gutters, and dry verge systems. The work was carried out by a team of skilled technicians from Advanced Roofline NI, who worked efficiently to ensure that the project was completed within the agreed timeframe.


The project was completed successfully, and the results achieved exceeded the expectations of the homeowners. The new energy-efficient windows and composite doors provided better insulation and noise reduction, which resulted in a more comfortable living environment for the residents.

The seamless aluminium gutters and dry verge systems provided improved protection against water ingress and wind uplift, which reduced the risk of roof damage and leaks. The homeowners also reported a significant improvement in the overall appearance of their homes, which increased their property value.


The completion of the project in Co. Cavan was a significant achievement for Advanced Roofline NI. The company’s expertise and commitment to delivering high-quality services were evident in the successful completion of the project.

What are Dry Verge Systems?

Dry Verge Systems: The Modern Solution for Traditional Gable Roofs

The Problem with Wet Verge Systems

Traditionally, houses with gable roofs have required the use of motor or other wet materials to secure the ends of the roof above the gable. However, over time, these roofs can develop multiple problems with durability and weathering due to the use of motor. This is where dry verge systems come in…

What are Dry Verge Systems?

Dry verge systems are motor-free roofing systems that use interlocking caps to clip over the edge of roof tiles. They create a weatherproof, durable, and attractive verge for any roofing project. Here are some benefits of dry verge systems:

Durable and Low Maintenance

Dry verge systems are made from plastic, which makes them extremely durable and requires very little maintenance. Unlike wet verge systems, where the motor used can crack due to natural thermal movement and expansion, leading to potential leaks, water damage, and pests entering the roof space. High levels of maintenance, such as repointing, are required, which can often be a costly task and not a permanent solution as there is no way of preventing motor from decaying.

Eliminating Potential Problems

Opting for a dry verge fit means you don’t have to worry about any potential water ingress or birds trying to nest in your roof. Also, the costs associated with fixing motor can be eliminated.

Attractive and Modern Finish

Dry verge systems come in a variety of colors and offer a discreet, attractive, and modern finish to your roofline. Due to the plastic materials used, this product can withstand various weather conditions because of its high durability, making it extremely long-lasting. This combined with the fact that these systems don’t require continuous repainting means they’re a very cost-effective product.

Improved Ventilation

Dry verge systems allow air to circulate freely, enabling greater ventilation, and helping prevent issues such as damp, mold, and mildew, often problems associated with traditional materials like motor.

Easy to Install

Dry verge systems are compatible with many types of roofs and are quick and easy to install. At Advanced Roofline, we can easily adapt this product to fit the left or right verges of your roof, which means only one verge is required instead of two, helping you save both time and money.

Professional Installation is Key

Although dry verge caps can be bought quite easily both online and in-store, we recommend contacting an expert like us to ensure proper installation. After all, you want to avoid expensive damage and reap the benefits of minimal maintenance and cost-effectiveness.

Rain Water System Benefits

Rain Water Systems

Rain water systems are essential when you live somewhere like Northern Ireland, as we’re partial to more than a little rainfall! Without a suitable rain water system, this means storm water can accumulate around your home beginning to cause serious problems. If you want to make sure your property is protected appropriately, ensuring rain water is drained correctly is imperative, as this water typically contains substances such as bacteria, nutrients, sediment, oil, grease, pesticides and trace metals all of which can cause a range of issues.

Below we’ll outline just some benefits of rain water systems and why these should be an essential aspect of your home.

1. Reduced Flooding:

Installing a rain water system means water can be collected and diverted away from vulnerable areas helping reduce the likelihood of flooding, and therefore potential damage to your home and belongings which can often be costly.

2. Ability to use collected water for additional uses:

Water collected through the use of a rain water system means this water can be utilised in other ways such as watering plants or putting out fires. Reusing water like this means you are also reducing your water consumption, and with less water having to be artificially drawn from the environment, it’s a very environmentally friendly step to take.

3. Less risk of icy patches:

Another one of the benefits of rain water systems is the reduced likelihood of icy patches that form when water is unable to drain. This can lead to the formation of water pools resulting in icy spots when the temperature drops which can be dangerous and lead to injury.

4. Avoid the spread of contaminants:

As previously mentioned rain water can contain a range of contaminants such as bacteria, pesticides and many more. Ignoring the collection of storm water means you run the risk of toxins and diseases spreading which can be harmful to humans, pets and any surrounding wildlife. Installing an effective drainage system means water is less likely to collect reducing the development and spread of diseases.

5. Keep plants safe:

Another benefit of rain water systems is that they can prevent the overflow of water that can cause damage to plants and grass, therefore the use of a rain water system allows them to avoid such harm.

6. Reduce risk of damage to infrastructure:

Having an effective rain water system means damage to the structure of your property and its surroundings is minimised. Without a dependable rain water system, serious damage can be caused to cables and plumbing systems and this is often very costly to repair.

As we’ve stated there are multiple benefits of rain water systems, and here at Advanced Roofline we have the solution to all your drainage needs. Working with a team of experts, we’ll ensure you are supplied with the correct products and installation expertise.

If you have any questions regarding rain water systems and the various benefits they can offer, or you would like some more information on the type of rain water systems we provide, feel free to contact us as we would be more than happy to help!

Signs Your Roof Needs Replaced

Signs Your Roof Needs Replaced

It’s often difficult to know when you may be in need of a roof replacement because a routine roof check is not a task typically at the top of our to-do lists. It is, however, an essential job and one that should be carried out once every six months to make sure any repairs are made, and costly long-term damage is avoided.

We’ve outlined some warning signs to look out for if you need a roof replacement and if you have noticed any damage to your roof, please reach out to one of our roofing contractors and we’ll make any necessary repairs.

1. Water damage:

Signs of water damage inside your home could be an indication that you’re in need of a roof replacement. Although watermarks, damp patches, or mildew can be a sign of a leaking window or damp, it’s important to check your roof both inside and out to ensure all possibilities are covered. If you see any signs of water in your attic, spot water pooling on your roof or notice water not draining appropriately you may have a problem and roofing contractors should be contacted to ensure no further damage is caused.

2. Sunlight coming through the roof:

It’s useful to make it routine to check for light coming in through your roof from outside. If you can see sunlight in your attic, this may be a sign there are holes and cracks in your roof and these should be attended to as soon as possible. It’s important to check your roof to see if this damage can be repaired or if an entire roof replacement is needed. If you’re unsure, contact roofing contractors such as Advanced Roofline and we can advise on the level of repair required.

3. Mould and moss growth:

Mould, moss, and algae are not immediate signs that a roof replacement is needed; however, it’s still important to look out for this as it can be a sign of moisture damage which can lead to rot developing. You should remove any signs of mould and moss as soon as possible because if left untreated this can force tiles apart, creating gapping and allowing water to get in.

4. Slipped tiles or sagging roof:

If you notice any roof tiles are worn, slipped, missing, or cracked, this could be a sign you’re in need of a roof replacement and you should act quickly as a weak roof can cave causing even greater damage. While checking your roof tiles, you should also pay attention to the ridge of your roof. Your roof ridge should follow a straight line and if you notice any sagging in the middle, this is cause for concern as it can be a sign of a weakened and compromised structure and therefore a roof replacement will be required to avoid collapse.

5. Signs of aging:

Overtime weathering and the surrounding elements can impact the longevity of your roof, so it’s important to keep an eye on it as it will not last forever. If your roof is over 20 years old, it’s recommended that roofing contractors review it and see if a roof replacement is required.

If you would like more information on roof replacements or would like to speak with one of our roofing contractors, please feel free to contact us.
