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
