Conservatory Conversion FAQs | Joining roof hips and ridge tiles

Conservatory Conversions Blog on Roof Hips and Roof Ridges

Two of our top five FAQs from customers, are in relation to Conservatory Conversions:

  1. How do we seal the ridge tiles?
  2. How do we join the ridge tiles to the roof hip?

In relation to roof hips and roof ridges converging, we don’t manufacturer a specific product as our ridge tiles can easily be cut into the desired shape and angle required for each project.

Here are a few customer examples

One customer created a quick video, showing how he had cut and shaped the ridge tiles for his conservatory conversion, to allow the hips and the roof ridge to neatly converge. With the addition of our Flexim Roof Putty, to seal the joints, it created a seamless and professional finish.

If you look at the point where the ridge tiles meet the hips, the builder has used our Flexim Roof Putty. Which looks incredibly neat & professional. The builder has mixed our Flexim Roof Putty and Brown roofing granules (from our repair kits, see details further down) to blend the joints with the tiles.

I had to increase the pitch as it was insufficient for water to run off of the tiles, I built a rise of additional 15 degrees onto the small pitch already on the triple walled roof. This was taking the front edge to rise to 200mm at the back, then flasbanded and bonded to the roof tile. The customer found that the conservatory wasn't useful to them before and this has made it into a additional room, with a bed settee as a guest room. The customer was absolutely thrilled with the transformation, and I was pleased with a trouble free installation.
