Dry Verge Fitting Instructions
All installations must conform to Building Regulations.
Extend the tiling battens 20mm beyond the gable wall or barge board and nail a Batten End Clip to the end of every batten.
1a If a batten end clip is not being used we recommend that the batten is extended 30mm over the barge board or brickwork and 40mm (minimum) x 3.25mm ring shank nails are used to fix the verge units. Prior to fixing the batten ends must be in good condition with no signs of decay or splitting.
Fix the Eaves Closure to the end of the fascia board or brick work.
Fit the first verge section ensuring that it is located onto the eaves closer.
Nail in position, through the Batten End Clip into the batten.
As each successive verge tile is laid, slide on a Dry Verge unit up to the tile toe, engaging with the unit below, nail in position through the Batten End Clip into the batten.
Insert a Ridge Closure into the last Unit, interlocking the combs of each Dry Verge unit at the apex.
Screw fix the Ridge End Cap to the ridge batten.
If dry verge units are to be fitted to existing buildings all of the old under-cloak and mortar bedding should be removed prior to fixing. A timber batten can then be installed running from the eave to ridge, this batten should protrude 30mm over the barge board or brick work / render for the units to fix into (as per step 1a).
