Felt Support Tray
Roofing felt perishes over a period of time, and is at its most vulnerable at the lower end.. the eaves. This is where the felt can sag and water can collect, this is called ‘ponding’. After some time the ponding effect causes the felt to rot and rupture, allowing the water to access the roof structure. The felt support tray, which is plastic, prevents this and it is rigid enough to prevent the overlapping felt to sag or pond and so avoids the natural breakdown process. This is the most cost-effective way of providing a complete and robust felt support system that will not deteriorate, giving additional protection to the fascia detail and is suitable for use with all slates and tiles.

Dry Verge System
Traditional mortar bedding is still the most widely used fixing method in England and Wales. compared to Scotland where currently 80% of all verges are mechanically fixed. However, the increased incidence of storms over the last few years has clearly highlighted the unreliability of mortar to secure the tiles. The switch to dry verge is gathering greater momentum every year. With all the advantages it is not difficult to see why.
British Standards state that no reliance should be placed on the sheer strength of mortar used in the filling and bedding. Mortar will eventually crack, in contrast, Universal Dry Verges are mechanically fixed and each unit individually screwed. With the next unit interlocking giving extra strength and hiding the screws offering the maximum protection against strong wind and water penetration giving you long term protection with a neat, attractive appearance and with none of the ongoing costs associated with mortar.
