A PANEL of roofing contractors convened by high-performance roofing membranes and universal roofing components manufacturer Klober has voted the company’s Roll-Fix® ridge and hip kit the easiest to install when compared to five other competitor kits.
The panel were asked to prioritise a number of attributes important to them when installing a dry ridge and hip system. The ease with which the roll was installed over the ridge batten was rated as the most important factor, followed by how strong the protection foil membrane was and how well the roll formed on to the tiles.
Other factors ranked included how well the roll adhered to dry and wet tiles, ventilation and long-term durability.
Further to rating Roll-Fix Kit as the easiest to install, the test panel also scored Klober 39% higher than the average score in quality against its competitors, and 29% better than other brands in holding out resisting against weather conditions.
