How should a dry verge be finished? The tile overhangs the cladding and the felt slightly overhangs. I dont get how this would be watertight if you check out the pictures. If this isnt right how should it be finished?

Normally you would have undercloak tucked under your battens. This give something for your mortar to sit on

It wont be cemented with being a dry verge. So was wondering how it should be finished

Yes sorry about that. Something happened and I could finish my sentence. I was going to say that the verges on a small sun room that I built on the back of my house still has open verges that are ready to be cemented. It's been like that for a couple of years would you believe, but rain water has never entered the building.

That does seem strange. I'm going to tack the felt down so its overhanging the cladding. I'm wondering if it's worth siliconing the dry verge along the roof tiles so water cant possibly get in. They're also misaligned so for how easy it is to remove them im considering trying to line them up neater. It's a family friend who did the job. He did it for next to nothing so dont want him to think I'm moaning

To be honest, the installation doesn't look too dissimilar from other dry verge systems I've seen. If there's no sign of water ingress I would say it's ok. You could do as you've suggested and tidy it up a little but it looks fair to me. Is it a fairly new job then?

It's only been done yesterday. I just find it odd for it to be left so open. Doesnt make sense does it?
