“It’s easier to use than a continuous verge system”, explained Billy. “More importantly, it gives a better end result, as you get a better fit when fixing back and you don’t have to worry about the straightness of the underlying structure. You can’t depend on the quality of workmanship of other trades, but the interlocking plain tile dry verge means we have control over the quality of our work. It has a wider maximum batten gauge than similar products, so gives us greater flexibility on site to address any variation in the brickwork or board. It gives, to my mind, a better finish.”
R&R Roofing now uses the mechanically-fixed verge detailing as standard practice for compatible jobs, most recently on a prestigious development of four-bedroomed detached homes for Hawk Developments.
“It’s more cost-effective,” explained Billy. “It also means we have simplified stockholding in the yard- both the LR120 and the Dry Verge we can, and do, use on numerous sites.”
