Ridging

Ridging

 

Ridging is the capping put in place along the apex of the roof and can be completed in various styles. Visit our photo gallery to see examples.

Block cut pattern
This is where shapes are cut out from a thick layer of reed laid along the top course of coatwork. We favour an alternating Vee and scallop design.

Flush Ridge
As the name suggests, this type of ridge melts into the line of the coatwork.

Saddle/Wrap-over
Achieved by placing a bent yealm over the apex on top of ridge, it rolls and reverses to produce a waterproof capping.

Butt-up
A layer of reed laid along the length of the top course of coatwork with one side [the predominant weather facing elevation] standing slightly proud.
