When Ridge Tiles break or become loose, water can seep into the materials below. Replacing broken Ridge Tiles should be done as soon as possible to prevent further issues.
Naturally, older roofs are more inclined to require repairs to ridge tiles, mainly when the mortar used to fix them has become weak. However, ridge tiles are susceptible to storm damage; therefore, even relatively new properties can require an expert roofing contractor to restore the integrity of your roof.
This is a traditional roofing method where ridge tiles are fixed in place using a mortar mix. Cement mortar is applied along the roof's apex, securing the ridge tiles and creating a weatherproof seal. This method has been widely used for its simplicity and cost-effectiveness. However, over time, the mortar can degrade, requiring periodic maintenance to prevent water ingress and maintain structural integrity.
A dry ridge tile system is a roofing installation method that uses mechanical fixings rather than mortar to secure ridge tiles along the roof's apex. It involves the use of ridge tiles, ridge brackets, and screws, providing a secure and weather-resistant ridge capping. This system allows for better ventilation, reduces the risk of water ingress, and minimizes maintenance needs by eliminating the reliance on traditional mortar, which can deteriorate over time.
Old ridge tiles have failed, requiring mortar to fix new.
Modern 'dry ridge' fixing with screws and clamps, providing a more secure fixing.

Barby Roofing are expert in the repair and replacement of ridge tiles. We offer free estimates and helpful advice to ensure your roof will protect your property for many years.
For patch repairs, we will usually recommend fitting tiles 'like for like'. If your ridge tiles were fixed using sand and cement, then we would repair them using this method. However, today, there is a better way to repair an entire ridge: the Dry Ridge System.
This system removes the need for sand and cement; instead, it uses screws and clamps, which provides a more secure fixing. This system makes it far easier to remove the Ridge Tiles should there be a problem with a roof tile located nearby.
Our roofing experts are also skilled in the repair or replacement of tiles, roofing felt, battens, leadwork and roof valleys.

Barby Roofing responded very promptly to a problem on my daughters bungalow roof. Everything sorted and a tidy job done in less than 24 hours. Would certainly recommend!
I have no hesitation in recommending Barby Roofing. They answered the phone, they came when they said they would and they did a thorough and professional job. The quality of their work was first class - they did some very neat leadwork on my chimney, for example, and fixed some tricky tiles back in place around a Velux window. Pleasant to deal with and good value too.
I was very impressed by the professional way Barby Roofing carried out repairs to my roof this week. The two young men were well organised and left my premises very tidy. I will definitely be recommending the company in the future. Thank you.
Our 110 year old roof sprang a leak!!!. A friend recommended Barby roofers to us and we were so lucky she did becauseTobias and his team were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. Polite, hard working and we cannot thank them enough for making us water tight. I would recommend them without reservation.
Excellent service provided. Quality workmanship at a great price, would recommend to anyone.
Excellent business! Tobias was great and really reliable, will always use! Thank you! :)
They were prompt, and did the work required to make my roof water right again even tho they had to go back out for other tiles. They even got me spare incase we have a problem again. They also cleared a small blockage in the guttering.

Did a great job of repairing my roof. Prompt response, quick to reply to messages very professional and sensibly priced. Would definitely recommend and use again.
After having 2 cowboys out to fix my leaking gutter, I contacted this company. just a shame I didnt come across them first. Very honest, reliable and managed to do the job that the other two failed on. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend.
Thank you, Lads. Great same day service, found the problem swiftly & now water tight again.
