What is dry fix?
Dry fix solutions have developed considerably over the last couple of decades as an alternative to mortar bedding. In fact Marley has been at the forefront being the first manufacturer to launch a dry ridge and verge system.
Although mortar has historically been the popular choice to bed hips, ridge and verges, there a number of factors that cause mortar to fail. Dry fix systems provide a mechanically secured alternative to mortar which is not only maintenance free, but in the case of ridge and hip systems, also provides ventilation to meet current Building Regulations, British Standards and National House Building Council (NHBC) guidelines.
