The overhang or verge of a roof is commonly protected by a wet verge made of mortar. However, exposure to the weather deteriorates the mortar, which causes it to crack and crumble leading to water leakage and roof damage.
The mortar doesn't keep pests, small animals and birds from invading the roof space which may cause damage.
The old wet verge requires regular maintenance with repairs, which can be costly.
A more durable and hassle free alternative is the use of dry verge caps made of tough plastic. These fit over the edge of your tiles, and offer long lasting protection to your roof.
They are more popular and give a finished look to the roof.
Dry verge keeps small animals and birds out, which protects the roof.
Dry verge allows for natural movement of the building and for ventilation to prevent condensation.
Its weatherproof and waterproof.
Dry verge comes in a choice of colours.
