RIDGES AND FLASHINGS
Bespoke Flashings and Ridges produced to your requirements in Copper, Stainless Steel and Zinc
Metal Gutta is the only manufacturer in the UK supplying Copper, Stainless Steel and Zinc rainwater systems since 1992.
We have previously manufactured Copper, Stainless Steel and Zinc ridges, fascia, soffits, window sills and valleys to suit customers own specifications.
All items are produced as standard in 2.4m lengths.
For a low cost, natural way to reduce repetitive and often dangerous roof cleaning, installing copper ridge flashing will help to diminish the growth of moss, algae and lichen build up on the roof.
Even the thinnest layer of moss will act like a sponge, absorbing water and therefore increasing the weight and stress on the roof, shortening its productive life span. Frost can also become a problem pushing tiles up and cracking them.
Flashing can be used in a number of ways: Roof flashing is used on roof hips or installed around objects that protrude from the roof of a building (such as pipes and chimneys, or the edges of other roofs) to deflect water away from seams or joints. It is key to preventing water intrusion.
All of our copper flashings, valleys, ridges and gutters are made from 0.6mm copper, which should give a material life in excess of 100 Years.
Once installed our copper ridge flashing will react with the air and rain causing the copper to oxidise, producing a fungicide called copper sulphate, a highly effective moss killer which will last for many years.
