Recent building regulations require all fittings on the verge of a roof to have at least two mechanical fixings — dry verge systems are the perfect solution for meeting building regulation requirements and providing an easy to fit and maintain pitched roof accessory.

Are dry roof verges a good idea? Yes, dry verges are a great idea as they are so durable compared to mortar verges. They are low maintenance too, so you don’t need to worry about your roof leaking, or having birds, nests or other critters nesting in your roof.
What is the purpose of a dry verge? A dry verge system interlocks caps and verges that go over the edge of roof tiles to protect the tiles from water damage, birds, critters and debris from damaging the roofline.
Is dry verge better than mortar? Although it is a matter of preference, dry verges are often seen as a more durable and effective way to line your roofing than mortar. Dry verges use a system of interlocking caps, which fit over the edge of roof tiles. It is safer and more secure than mortar verges, which can become porous over time, eventually cracking and dislodging. Mortar verges require regular maintenance and this can be costly.
