A verge refers to the junction between the roof and the gable end of the building. A gable refers to the wall that infills between two opposite roof slopes and usually finishes in a triangular shape. The traditional way of finishing the roof at a gable wall is to use mortar.
Traditionally this detail includes a layer of plain tiles, slates or fibre cement board to assist in the weatherproofing. Unfortunately all too often this type of verge is poorly installed, leading to eventual water ingress. Even if properly installed a verge detail will require regular maintenance as it is prone to mortar failure.
Dry verge systems help avoid these defects and the need for periodic maintenance of the mortar bedding. For many tiles, special ‘cloaked verge’ tiles are available which neatly close the gap at the verge. Alternatively plastic dry verge systems are available which suit most tiles. These are available in single units, ie one piece per tile course, or in continuous lengths. These are attractive and highly functional ways to improving the overall appearance of your roof. The systems are easy-to-use and provide a neat, secure and mortar-less finish at roof verges. A dry verge system will also reduce the risk of wind damage, water penetration and will stop small animals getting into the roof space.
Broken guttering can lead to problems that can seriously affect your property, including dampness, damage to pointing, window frames and even the foundations of your home if there is no way for rainwater water to escape.
It’s important therefore, not to ignore any problems that you may have. Regular maintenance is adviseable because neglected guttering can often lead to extensive repairs. Gutters that get clogged up with leaves, dirt and various forms of debris means that water cannot be drained away efficiently and may overflow and leak into the roof or down the walls. In addition, the weight of the water and debris that has built up can cause the guttering to pull away from it’s mountings on the roof fascia boards.
If a repair becomes necessary then we can provide the skills to carry out the work safely and effectively. If after close inspection we deem that your guttering or downspouts are not repairable, or if you prefer to have them replaced, then we can provide you with a competitive price for a complete or partial gutter replacement.
