How can we seal or join ridge tiles to hips?

 

So, we have a few customers ask us what do you do when you have a hip meet the ridge tile? How would you seal it? 

Unfortunately, at the moment we don’t manufacturer a specific product for this so with thanks to some of our customers we can show you some examples of how they have sealed the join. 

One customer created a quick video for us showing how he cut the ridge tiles so they all joined and met at the middle point then sealed it using our Flexim Roof Putty.

Another customer joined the ridge tiles to the hips using our Led alternative Ubiflex.  

 

Below are a few examples of our recent customer conservatories where they have a ridge tile meeting the hips. They have used both the Flexim Roof Putty and the Ubiflex.

Once the Ridge tiles and the Hips meet and are sealed with either our Flexim Roof Putty or our Ubiflex you can then use our repair Touch up kits which includes 1 x tin of Lacquer and 1 x bottle of granules to go over the top to blend it in with the colour of the tiles you have chosen. Or if you choose to use our Flexim roof putty you can order a bottle of granules as well and mix this into the Flexim so when you put it on the join the granules are already mixed in to complete the aesthetic finish.

 

The below image shows how the customer has used our Flexim Roof Putty and then sprinkled the Brown granules over the top to blend it in with the tiles.

I just wanted to say how good your product was when I used it recently .
I took down an old wooden conservatory and replaced it with a brick one that had a wooden roof . The front of the conservatory roof sat on a wall plate on top of the French door frame and I didn’t want the weight of concrete tiles on top of that,so I researched and found your product.
The videos of how the product was made and installed and how durable they were was a deciding factor in me choosing yourself over other similar product I had seen.
I have to say the service from the lady who took the order to the prompt delivery was 1st class and friendly , and the price was a lot less than I had thought was going to be .
The product itself was top quality and installation was as simple as it could be with everything fitting together without any problems and the verge trims finished it off fantastically and all the people who have seen it have commented on how good it looks .
I have been a building site manager for 25 years plus so have a good idea of things and how they should work and I have to say I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or use your product again.
So well done for developing such a great product and wishing your company every success in the future.

Many thanks
