What's wrong with mortar?

Mortar is a long-used and perfectly logical choice for such an important area of your roof – after all, it does prevent the penetration of the roof by birds and water. However, this is only the case with any given mortar for a limited time, given the material’s natural deterioration due to gradual weathering by the elements.

Natural movement within the structure of a building can further dislodge the mortar, resulting in cracks that can begin to cause the problems mortar is meant to prevent – to say nothing of the sheer ugliness of a deterioration in this crucial part of your roof.

Such traditional roofing is known as ‘wet verge’ roofing. Well, there’s an alternative. It’s called ‘dry verge’ roofing, and we are among the leading specialists in this acclaimed roofing solution in Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Northumberland, Sunderland, Durham and other parts of the North East.

What are the benefits of dry verge systems?

  • Can be retrofitted
  • Maintenance-free
  • Lasts more than ten years
  • Retains traditional appearance

Choose a dry verge system for the following applications

  • Homeowners with roofing problems
  • Retrofitting on existing roofs
  • New build properties

Our dry verge roofing can give you the utmost reassurance

The popularisation of dry verge systems in recent years has demonstrated that wet verge systems are far from the only feasible option for the prevention of water ingress and pests in a property’s roof, delivering the same immediate effect but without mortar being required.

A dry verge roofing system works on the basis of interlocking caps that fit over the edge of a home’s roof tiles. Such caps are usually made from plastic, which is famed for its durability; you can expect your plastic verge caps to not need to be replaced for at least 10 years, with only minimal maintenance requirements in comparison to mortar.

Such a dry verge system even enables your roofing to look better for much longer than would necessarily be the case with a traditional wet verge arrangement. All in all, a dry verge system could be the ideal visually attractive, long-lasting and stress-free solution when you are considering the most suitable treatment for this part of your roof.
