Stone Ridge

Our vented ridge is also available in natural stone. RealRidge stone makes installing the ridge on traditional stone roofs easy, ventilated and dry fix. Our pre-formed stone ridge tiles are available in a variety of stock angles and can be coloured on request. 

Stone Ridge

We can make RealRidge in any material and angle, so if you would like a bespoke ridge to match your roofing project, please get in touch. We are more than happy to accommodate. 

Ridge ventilation

Modern construction methods require a fully ventilated ridge system. However, roll-out vent systems offer very little ventilation when used with roofing materials such as slates, and the fixings are unsightly.

The Mayan RealRidge does not need a roll-out ridge and therefore offers superb aesthetics and the highest levels of ventilation to cope with the rising high level ventilation requirements to combat condensation in modern homes.
