Fully compatible roofing products

With a single source for every part of the roof covering, installers can rest assured that all components will work together to create an attractive and fully compliant roof that goes up quickly and easily.

You can also enjoy simplified procurement and logistics, keeping projects on schedule and customers happy.

Dry fix made easy

The code of practice for installing slates and tiles, BS 5534, is an extensive document that establishes the importance of dry fixing in roof installation.

That is, the use of mechanical fixings in roof coverings in place of traditional mortar. While the standard isn't required by law, following its guidelines will contribute towards building regulation compliance.

As one of the early pioneers in dry fixing, Marley has developed many high-performance purpose-made systems for pitched roofs, including dry fix ridges, hips, verges, valleys, and ventilation products. We also continue to design and innovate new dry fix products, adding to and improving our range.
