Ease and speed of installation and a maintenance free roofing solution were
the key requirements in the recent development of thirty-eight homes in Torquay,
Devon, which specified Marley Roofing Product’s innovative RidgeFast System
for its durable and reliable qualities.
Constructed by Bovis Homes on behalf of Barton Housing Association, the specification
of Marley Roofing’s
Dry Fix Systems, in addition to complementary tiles within its range, were
installed on over 2000m2 of roofing for the social housing
The adoption of the Dry Fix approach is becoming the preferred method for
weatherproofing details, as it is based on the mechanical fixing of components
and therefore can be fixed in all weather conditions. This enables contractors
to move onto the next phase of the project more quickly and Housing Associations,
such as the Barton, are welcoming the low maintenance and weathertight appeal
of a dry fixed roof.
The Marley Dry Fix Systems specified for use with Modern interlocking tiles
on this development, included the Modern Cloak Verge new Universal RidgeFast
System. Easy to install in a simple roll out operation, RidgeFast features a
ridge roll membrane and unique fixing method that means it is not only ideal
for use with other Marley products, but is also universally compatible with
other manufacturer’s standard ridges, tiles and slates. RidgeFast provides roofing
professionals with an economical, quick and simple solution for ventilating
the ridge and is also competitively priced, offering a further advantage for
social housing developments.
With current industry trends moving towards the further adoption of dry fix
systems, more people are becoming aware of the low maintenance and weathertight
appeal of dry fix roofing. By facilitating a more stable and secure long-term
roofing solution that inspires the confidence of roofing contractors, the progressive
uptake of dry fix methods, including RidgeFast, can only signal good news for
the nation’s homebuilders.
