Wet Ridge vs Dry Ridge System

Ark Roofing Preston

Wet ridge systems have been around a very long time composed of mortar bedded ridges they are a cheaper option and quicker than installing a dry ridge system. However, they are not as effective neither do they have the lifespan of the dry ridge system. On a wet ridge system the mortar is exposed to the elements and can deteriorate over time which may mean that they need rebedding again in years to come.

A dry ridge system is highly effective and requires little to no maintenance. As a result, they are more expensive than the wet ridge system. but they are fitted mechanically meaning they don’t use any mortar and will often last as long as the roof itself.

They are available in a vast array of colours shapes and sizes to suit your needs giving a modern look it is a far superior product compared to the wet ridge system.
