    Hi,

    I've had some quotes for replacing the main roof - using a dry fix ridge and hip system

    One of the quotes details using a lead saddle for the ridge/hip mitred union.

    Is this standard/best practice ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,

    Dave

    I wouldn't say its standard practice but it will outlast anything else.
