Dry Fixed Ridge, Hip & Verge Systems

What is a dry fixed ridge system?

The dry-fix roofing system is the mechanically fitted installation of ridge and hip tiles to your roof and is a British Standard requirement.

At JR roofing Lancs Limited we work to British Standard. We install dry-fix systems which includes the mechanical fixing of ridge tiles and verges, in keeping with BS5534.

Can I replace my ridges with dry fix?

If your existing mortar is loose and failing or your ridges are porous and showing signs of wear our highly trained roofing team can assess your roof. In most cases with dry fix you will be required to replace your existing ridge tiles and our specialist local roofers can go through all your options.

At JR roofing Lancs Limited we provide the highest quality of craftsmanship with the upmost professionalism and always meeting British Standard.

What is dry verge system?

Dry verge is a UPVC product used to finish the open gable ends instead of mortar. The verge is used to prevent water ingress and pests such as birds nesting in your roof space.

The British Standards BS 5534 require all ridge, hip and verge tiles to be mechanically fixed.


The dry fixed systems allow the roof to breathe which can help to prevent condensation and damp.


Dry fixed systems secure your tiles to your roof preventing them from lifting in extreme weather and stopping the ingress of water.
