Dry ridge tiles are fine if fitted correctly, what exactly has happened for them to last only 3 months.

Hi, if fitted properly, yes. I personally think good old sand+cement look better. Dry verge allways seem "unfinished" to look at, in my opinion that is!

I only use mechanically fixed when specified as I think they look cheap on a traditional roof, but If they havent lasted it due to a bad tradesman as the NHBC specify them on 99% of new builds I do.

dry ridge are proven to be a very good system,but as it requires a screw fixing through the ridge with a rubber washer to keep out the weather-i would always go for the old school ridging- thats just me tho!

Yes if fitted correctly once fitted you have piece of mind that you will not have to worry about maintenance ie if ridge are beded on mortar you will at some stage in the future need to remove ridge clean of old mortar and re-bed and point although if a correct mix is used you should have to do this for a while all depends on the weather ie ware n tare .hope this answers your question .
