Dry fix installation of ridge tiles is becoming increasingly popular in the UK roofing industry, and for good reason. Unlike traditional mortar-based installations, dry fix systems provide a more secure and long-lasting solution for securing ridge tiles in place, especially in the UK’s wet and windy climate.

A dry fix ridge system has several advantages over traditional mortar-based ridge systems for roofing:

  1. Durability: Dry fix ridge systems are made of durable materials such as uPVC or metal, which are resistant to weathering, cracking, and decay. This means they have a longer lifespan and require less maintenance over time.
  2. Reduced maintenance: Unlike traditional mortar-based ridge systems, dry fix ridge systems do not require regular maintenance or repointing. This can save time and money over the life of the roof.
  3. Improved ventilation: Dry fix ridge systems are designed to allow for proper ventilation in the roof space. This helps prevent moisture buildup, which can lead to problems such as mold, rot, and decay.
  4. Increased weather resistance: Dry fix ridge systems are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, including high winds and heavy rain. This makes them a more reliable and secure option for roofing.
  5. Ease of installation: Dry fix ridge systems are easy to install and require no special skills or tools. This can save time and money on installation costs.

Another advantage of dry fix installations is their ease of maintenance. Mortar-based installations require regular maintenance to ensure that the ridge tiles remain secure, which can be time-consuming and costly. In contrast, dry fix systems require very little maintenance once they have been installed, making them a cost-effective solution for homeowners and roofing professionals alike.
Dry fix systems are also more environmentally friendly than traditional mortar-based installations. Mortar requires a significant amount of water to mix, which can be wasteful and harmful to the environment. Dry fix systems, on the other hand, use pre-manufactured components that are designed to fit together seamlessly, reducing waste and the overall environmental impact.
Finally, it is worth noting that the use of dry fix installations is now a requirement under the British Standard BS5534. This standard specifies the requirements for slating and tiling for pitched roofs and vertical cladding, including the use of dry fix systems for securing ridge tiles. This means that dry fix installations are not only a superior solution but also a legal requirement for roofing professionals in the UK.
In conclusion, dry fix installations of ridge tiles in the UK climate are a superior solution to traditional mortar-based installations. They provide a more secure, long-lasting, and environmentally friendly solution while requiring less maintenance. With the implementation of BS5534, dry fix installations are also a legal requirement for roofing professionals in the UK, ensuring that homeowners receive the best possible roof structure for their properties. At Rock Roofing Products, we manufacture high-quality GRC roofing products that are designed to work seamlessly with dry fix installations, providing our customers with the best possible roofing solutions for their properties.

GRC (Glassfiber Reinforced Concrete) is a high-performance building material that is becoming increasingly popular in the construction industry due to its strength, durability and lightweight properties. One of the key applications of GRC is in the manufacturing of ridge tiles for roofing.

Our company specializes in the production of GRC 2 hole crested ridge tiles and 450mm 3 hole crested ridge tiles, which are available in a variety of colors and angles. The 2 hole crested ridge tiles are manufactured in angles of 75-90-105-115-125 degrees, making them suitable for a wide range of roofing projects. The colors available for these tiles include Warm Grey, Terracotta, Buff, and Old English, ensuring that you can find the perfect match for your roofing needs.

The 2 hole crested ridge tiles are designed to provide excellent water shedding and wind resistance, making them an ideal choice for areas with high wind or heavy rain. They are also lightweight, which makes them easy to handle and install.

In addition to the 2 hole crested ridge tiles, we also offer a range of 450mm 3 hole crested tiles, which provide even more versatility in roofing design. These tiles are also available in the same range of colors and angles, making it easy to match your roofing needs.

At our company, we take pride in producing high-quality GRC ridge tiles that are built to last. We use only the best materials and employ skilled craftsmen to ensure that our products meet the highest standards of quality and durability.

If you are looking for GRC ridge tiles for your roofing project, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We will be happy to discuss your needs and provide you with the perfect solution.

Roofing is an essential part of any building. It protects the structure from external elements such as rain, wind, and sun. However, it’s not just about functionality; it’s also about aesthetics. A well-designed roof can add to the overall appeal of a building. That’s where roof accessories come in.

One such accessory is the finial, a decorative element that sits at the highest point of a roof’s ridge.

At Rock Roofing Products, we recently manufactured a large Fleur-de-lys finial onto Marley Clay Terracotta ridge tiles, which we color matched to our customer’s requirements. The finial was made by our specials team, who are skilled craftsmen with years of experience in creating bespoke roof accessories.

The final product was of high quality, and we were proud of the achievements of our specials team. The Fleur-de-lys finial added a touch of elegance and sophistication to the roof, which complemented the overall design of the building.

Rock Grc (Glass Reinforced Concrete) finials are designed to withstand the test of time, especially when compared to other traditional building materials. GRC is a composite material that contains cement, sand, water, and glass fibers. This composition makes it a strong, durable, and long-lasting material, perfect for outdoor applications, including architectural features such as finials.

GRC finials are resistant to weathering and can withstand harsh weather conditions, such as extreme heat, cold, and moisture, without deteriorating or losing their structural integrity. They are also resistant to UV rays, making them ideal for use in areas that receive direct sunlight.

Overall, Rock Grc finials are an excellent choice for those looking for a durable and long-lasting architectural feature that can withstand the test of time.

At Rock Roofing Products, we believe that the devil is in the detail, and that’s why we pay attention to the small details, such as finials, that can make a big difference to the overall appearance of a building. Our team of experts is always on hand to help our customers choose the right finial for their roof, taking into consideration the design, style, and function.

In conclusion, a finial is an essential accessory that adds the finishing touch to any roof.

We are thrilled to see our GRC Fleur-de-lys crested ridges installed so beautifully with our Rock ridge dry fix kits. GRC, or Glass Reinforced Concrete, is a material that has been gaining popularity in recent years for its strength, durability, and versatility. Our GRC products are made using a unique manufacturing process that involves a mix of cement, water, sand, and alkali-resistant glass fibers. This process creates a product that is lightweight, yet incredibly strong, making it ideal for use in a variety of construction applications.

One of the great benefits of GRC is its longevity. Our GRC products are resistant to weathering, UV exposure, and water damage, making them ideal for use in a variety of climates. They require very little maintenance and have a much longer lifespan than traditional building materials. Additionally, because our products are manufactured in a controlled environment, we are able to ensure consistent quality and performance.

We are constantly innovating and improving our manufacturing processes to ensure that we are providing our customers with the highest quality, most durable GRC products available. We are proud to see our products being used in such a beautiful and effective way, and we look forward to continuing to provide our customers with superior GRC products for years to come.

Bespoke manufactured ridge to match original

We were asked if we could assist with a gentleman who wanted just 3 of these Cathedral style ridge tiles as he was having great difficulty trying to source these products for over 10 weeks.

We quickly got to work and after a little time with the specials team we came up with our own version.

We also created a bespoke colour match to suit the originals and we were all impressed with the results.

Do you have an un usual ridge that you can’t source and need a match?

Contact us for a discussion as we can reproduce the vast majority of styles of crested ridge tiles.

It’s been a busy week

We have had a busy week down in Leigh which has involved getting plenty of orders packed and out on the courier.

We thought we would share as we love the way our new packaging looks.

It now gives us the feeling of becoming a brand as the company grows and moves forward.

We do as much as we can in the way we now pack our products to make sure they get to you in good condition.

Onwards and upwards for Rock Roofing Products…

New Rock Roofing wrapping

After waiting nearly 3 months, our newly designed packaging arrived.

This is a great step forward as it offers our customers greater protection of our products instead of the shrink wrap we used and we all get less dizzy in the factory from wrapping.

These new hoods shrink down and tighten after being heated. They include a QR code either side of the LOGO which links directly to our website.

We immediately got to work and used the new packaging and loaded our courier and were very happy with the results.

We now await some waterproof UV stable stickers to identify our products.

Rock D
ry Fix

Dry Fix now as standard. Rock Roofing are proud to have designed our own dry fix system for crested ridge tiles.
Not many are aware that this is an option.

We carefully score our crested ridge tiles 4 times on the necks and create slides were our H section clips can be installed. Battens are then raised underneath our products and screws are used to fix the ends down after utilising our ventilated dry ridge roll.

The outcome is an aesthetically pleasing installation.

Our Plain angled ridges are generally fixed with dry ridge kits and after a meeting with our design team and some consideration from the directors we now pre-drill as standard our capped angled ridge tiles around 50mm down from the collared side.
This forces pressure on the opposing plain end.

Bat vented ridges

After requests from our customers asking if we could manufacture homes for Bats we got to work with some designs.

We are happy to report that we have supplied around 100 products for SIG Roofing on a site in Wales.

We also have supplied some Bat slates and Bat vent ridges, the most recent being on our 105 capped angled ridge tiles.

We hope the bats are attracted and use the products to nest in.

Our Specials team can work wonders with our GRC products.

I was interviewed by Roofing Today Magazine in January 2020 (Issue 86 -page 46) about our improved GRC roofing products.

The interview explains how since taking over at Rock Roofing Products we have massively improved the quality of the GRC roofing products we produce. We’ve improved the GRC mix, redesigned all the existing products and extended the range with thicker moulds. To finish things off we’ve improved the packaging.

Others had given GRC a bad name, but with all our improvements we aim to show that our quality GRC ridge tiles, crested ridges and finials are a superior product that roofers and home owners will love.

“We can now re-create any design, colour match it and reproduce it perfectly out of GRC. our aim is to bring these special, ornamental roof decorations within reach and help transform an ordinary roof design into something distinctive and beautiful”
