What is a dry verge?

 A dry verge system acts as an alternative to traditional wet verges, which use mortar to secure the outer edges of the roof, to prevent the ingress of water, birds and insects into the roof space.

There are a number of different continuous GRP dry verge products available, depending on the type of roof you are working on. The DV6 dry verge is a continuous dry verge for slate roofs, that fixes under battens, the DV7 continuous dry verge is for Scottish slate roofs, and is fitted over the batten onto the sark board, the DV8 continous dry verge is for slate and plain tiles, and is fitted to the barge board, whilst the DV9 GRP dry verge product is for Scottish slate roofs, and is fitted onto the sark board.

How do GRP continuous dry verges work?

Instead of using mortar to fix the verge to the roof, GRP continuous dry verges consist of pieces of GRP (glass reinforced plastic) that have been pre-shaped. They interlock to create a single continuous piece of dry verge to protect the edge of the roof.

What are the benefits of a GRP continuous dry verge?

There are a number of benefits to using a GRP continuous dry verge as opposed to traditional wet verges on your roofing project. 

Easy installation

The first benefit is the installing GRP continuous dry verges is a lot quicker and easier to do than using mortar. Dry verges can be fitted under battens, useful when building a new roof structure, or simply fitted to the barge board, suitable for refurbishment projects.  This helps to save on labour time and costs, keeping within the budget and on schedule.

Impact resistant & durable

Secondly, using a GRP continuous dry verge is beneficial because of the characteristics of GRP (glass reinforced plastic). GRP is a durable, long-lasting and highly impact resistant material, meaning that the dry verge will have a long lifespan and is very unlikely to be damaged.

No maintenance required

Another benefit of using GRP continuous dry verges is that they require very little maintenance. Wet verge systems require regular maintenance and repair, such as repointing of mortar, due to the natural thermal movement of the building causing cracks to occur. Grp dry verges allow for thermal movement, meaning that they do not crack, and therefore do not require regular maintenance.
