Why Dry-Fix? 

The roof is the most exposed part of any building. Using mortar to secure vulnerable areas of the roof, such as the verge, will inevitably lead to future maintenance. Differential movement causes mortar to crack and no reliance should be placed on its tensile or shear strength. The action of frost and rain will exploit the development of hairline cracks.

In contrast, because *Dry-Fix roofing is mechanically fixed:

  • It is safe and secure and offers better resistance to wind uplift and water penetration.

  • It complies with BS 5534 requirements for mechanical fixing

  • Fixing need not be a problem in bad weather because, unlike mortar, many Dry-Fix roofing products can be easily installed, even in damp and frosty conditions.

  • Fixing is fast and simple, without the mess and inconvenience of mixing, carrying and using mortar.

  • Dry-Fix roofing can prove highly cost effective. It also means a more consistent appearance, with none of the longer-term maintenance problems and costs associated with mortar bedding.

 

*Where we can we try to install Klober Dry-Fix products due to their quality. We do from time to time use other manufacturers depending of the properties requirements as different products fit to different gauges of roof. This will be advised as necessary.
