Dry valleys are one of the most vulnerable parts of any roof because they’re ripe for leaks and water damage. That’s why a good dry valley system is an essential pitched roof accessory to keep your building project in great shape for years to come.
What is dry roof valley? A dry roof valley is an inclined section of roof with no mortar bedding. This leaves them open to water damage, so it’s important to install a dry valley roof system to mitigate this damage. A dry roof valley system is a product that allows water to safely run off the roof and into the gutter.

How does a dry valley system work? Dry valleys work by creating a weathertight seal over some of the most vulnerable parts of the roof and allowing water to run down the valley and into the guttering, rather than pooling or seeping through roofing and tiles.
