I need to replace the ridge tiles on a single story extension attached to the side of our house; it's in pretty poor condition, so thought is to replace the ridge tiles with a dry ridge system. I'm also going to replace the existing dry verge because it's currently held on wedged under tiles and siliconed to the ridge tile...

I have 3 questions:

1. are there any dry ridge/verge systems that would be best suited to conversion of a concrete one?
2. how would be best to tie the dry ridge into the exiting wall joint to the main house - still using flashing over the top of the dry verge waterproof layer?
3. the dry verge has been fitted really badly - no fixings to batons and there is no soffit on the wall - i don't think the battens are long enough. is it best just to add another length of batten above the existing one protruding the the right length or is there a better approach to use?
