Install the underlay and battens as normal, leaving the underlay 5-30mm short of the ridge on both sides. Do not fix the top tiling batten at this stage.
Build up the ridge batten using 25mm thick battens to the required height, usually two battens are sufficient for most profile tiles. Secure the battens in place using the stainless steel batten straps provided. Where Easy-Verge U is to be installed, the ridge batten must extend beyond the ridge by 30mm at each gable end.
Install the top tiling batten as normal, leaving a 10mm air gap.
Lay and fix tiles as normal.
Roll out the ridge roll centrally across the entire length of the ridge batten, using the white spine of the roll as a guide over the ridge batten. Secure the roll by nailing or stapling through the white spine. All joints in the ridge roll must be overlapped by 75mm min. Leave a 75mm long strip of the roll at each end of the ridge.
Remove the release paper from the butyl adhesive strip on the underside of each edge of the ridge roll, and firmly press onto the clean dry tile on both sides (avoid crushing the corrugations). Continue this process along the entire ridge line. Adhere the roll to the vertical surface of the dry verge unit at the gable end and at the hip abutment, overlap the roll across the hip rolls by 75mm, carefully sealing the butyl adhesive in place.
Insert the long and two short ratchet clips loosely into the middle and side slots respectively on the union. Lay the ridge tile on the ridge roll starting at the gable end or hip abutment, and slide the union into the open end. Slide the next ridge tile into the open end of the ridge union and press all three clips firmly in place. Secure the union with the screws provided, through the long ratchet clips. Any protruding end of the union can be snapped off or folded behind the union.
Continue this process along the ridge to the end. Secure the ridge end tile through the pre-drilled holes provided or drill a hole through when using reclaimed tile.
