Interlocking roofing detail from Hambleside Danelaw gives greater control over quality of end result

  • 21 Jan 2020

To R&R Roofing in Shropshire, it’s the fine detail that makes the difference to the overall performance and aesthetics of a project. As a result, MD Billy Rogers chooses Danelaw Interlocking Plain Tile Dry Verge to finish pitched roofs with Ashmore interlocking plain tiles.

Billy commented: “It’s easier to use to my mind than a continuous verge system. More importantly, it gives a better end result, as you get a better fit when fixing back: you don’t have to worry about the straightness of the underlying structure.

“You can’t depend on the quality of workmanship of other trades, but the interlocking plain tile dry verge means we have control over the quality of our work.

“It has a wider maximum batten gauge than similar products so gives us greater flexibility on site to address any variation in the brickwork or board. It gives, to my mind, a better finish.”

R&R Roofing now uses the mechanically-fixed verge detailing as standard practice for compatible jobs, most recently on a prestigious development of four-bedroomed detached homes for Hawk Developments. 

As a matter of course the family-owned company also uses Danelaw LR120 tile and slate roofing underlay where relevant, sourcing the membrane and Danelaw dry verge system from Roofing & Salvage Depot. 

Billy added: “It’s more cost-effective. It also means we have simplified stockholding in the yard- both the LR120 and the Dry Verge we can, and do, use on numerous sites.”
