    Just a general question as I am interested in what method everyone else uses.

    What is everyone's favoured method of completing a hip to ridge junction on a dry roof system?

    1) Plastic ridge/hip junction pieces
    2) Cutting the tiles and using mortar.
    3) Using a saddle/lead over the joint

    Surely it depends on how the rest of the ridge/hip tiles are fixed?

    It's never a pretty junction no matter what.

    I use a bucket of mortar slapped on.
