Seabreeze Poses No Challenge To Marley's Ridgefast

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 development.

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.
