A dry ridge system is the method of fixing ridge tiles to a roof without the use of the traditional sand and mortar cement. Instead it uses a dry fix system that uses screws to attach clamps between joints, allowing to clamp the tiles to the roof. Beneath these screws are waterproof unions, which will catch any small amounts of rain and disperse of this on to the actual roof.
There are several benefits to using a universal dry ridge roofing system, including:
No maintenance, unlike the traditional mortar fixed tiles which may degrade over time.
They provide ventilation, which prevents any build-up of condensation etc, which may be harmful to your roof.
It won’t degrade over time, like mortar, which means that the tiles won’t blow off under normal weather conditions.
It will allow for any type of movements, such as natural expansion and vibration movements in your roof.
