JB House Maintenance & Renovation are fully qualified fitters of ridge tiles and verges. We have fitted the ridges and verges to maintain customer’s roofs across Barnsley, Sheffield, Leeds, Huddersfield, Wakefield, Leeds, Doncaster, Rotherham and surrounding areas.
The ridge tiles and verges of your roof are normally out of sight and out of mind, however they should be maintained regularly as neglecting them can often lead to many and much worse problems with your roof. If not maintained, ridge tiles can be blown off by strong winds causing heavy damage as they fall including the smashing of your roof tiles and guttering, not to mention the damage they would cause when hitting the floor. Missing ridge tiles and/or missing pointing will also cause damp and leaking, leading to other contingency problems within your property. Not maintaining your verge also leads to problems such as leaking.
To repair the ridge we would begin by removing all the existing ridge tiles and debris. We would then clean your tiles, replacing any broken ones. The tiles would then be relayed on a bed of mortar, finishing by pointing up between the tiles. To re-point the verge we would remove all the existing pointing and re-fill with new mortar. Many customers are now choosing to replace their verges with dry verges. Dry verges can withstand all weathers and never require maintenance, as opposed to normal verges that require re-pointing every ten or so years. To fit, a roll of ventilated plastic is rolled out along the ridge and is then fixed into place with self adhesive strips, covering the tiles and ridge board. The new ridge tiles are then fixed over the ventilated plastic using clips and stainless steel screws. Dry verge end caps are then fitted which act as pointing.
