Dry Verge

Dry verge roof edging prevents the edges on the gable of double pitched roofs from blowing upwards in adverse weather conditions. The cap covers the ends of the tiles, lessening the exposure to the elements and securing the tiles to either the timber or the fascia board, providing additional protection and a more aesthetically pleasing finish at the same time.

All of our dry verge trim options are competitively priced and easily available to order online, as well as being easy to install – especially the universal options.

Easy Trim Universal Dry Verge System - Terracotta

Dry Verge Systems

At ERoofing, we offer a broad selection of dry verge roof caps to suit all types of tiles. Caps are essential for preserving the integrity of end tiles. The secure fit of the cap covers the end of the tiles and anchors it to the roof structure, ensuring the tiles are dislodged by heavy winds and adverse weather conditions that could otherwise cause damage.

Multiple caps will be required to line the side of the roof, but we offer competitive pricing. Our Easy Trim Universal Dry Verge System is available with reduced pricing depending on the quantity. Up to nine units costs £4.49 per cap, but a quantity order of up to 29 sees the price drop to £1.64 per unit, making them an affordable option for preserving your roof and increasing the aesthetic.

The caps are exceptionally easy to install and layer on top of each other, ensuring there are no gaps for water, animals, or wind to dislodge tiles. In addition, the plastic caps offer durability and flexibility that mortar does not, and there’s little required upkeep.

Dry verge roof caps provide a sleek and flush finish, but with increased ventilation. This allows air to circulate without the risk of damp penetrating the roof structure and causing structural issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a dry verge and wet verge?

Wet verges utilise mortar to secure the end tiles in place, but mortar isn’t fully weatherproof and doesn’t allow for natural movement of the roof. This could cause cracks, and in high winds, end tiles can become dislodged. Dry verge caps provide a cover to the end tiles and anchor them to the roof structure, ensuring they cannot be dislodged by wind whilst also allowing for natural movement.

Are dry verge systems high maintenance?

Once installed, dry verge roof systems require little to no maintenance. They are more durable than wet verges and so will need no more than two checks a year from the ground to ensure they’re still in good condition.

How much is it to get dry verge fitted?

Depending on how much work is needed and on the complexity of the roof this will differ and thus cost will never be the same for two different people. We recommend getting in touch with three different professional roofers and get an idea for a quote. Typically, you should be spending from £500 to the £1,000 mark.

What is a continuous dry verge?

A continuous dry verge will give your property a complete watertight, continuous barrier against water penetrating between tiles and brickwork or bargeboard at gable ends. This will give your property enhanced security.
