I've recently had an extension built. The ridge tiles that have been installed look unusual from what we have seen on other other extensions. I'm not a builder and have no knowledge and our builder has confirmed this is the correct way to install.

The images show a plastic connectors between each ridge tile and the other image is showing wood which is visible from the corner ridge tile. I would assume this should not be showing?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

It's a "dry ridge" system.

Whether or not any timber should show at a "corner", I don't know.

Looking at the angle, is this on a hip ?

The dry ridge usually fixes on a batten, which sits in a metal bracket over the ridge board.
It looks like its set to high, if its the hip you could have water problems.

Hi Cotswold builders, thanks for the feedback. I'm not sure if its on the hip but I've enclosed a few more images.

The image at a distant shows the timber which is visible near the hip starter (if thats the correct name)

There's no lead saddle covering the top tiles, needs one fitted and dressed into the wall.
That down pipe needs directing away from the top of ridge.
What's the pitch of the roof and make of tiles, seems a bit shallow especially for the velux.
You shouldn't see any batten showing.
I'd be a bit dubious fitting dry ridge system on that low a pitch.

We are doing a roof at present at 12 degree pitch, the easy slate system are more expensive than the slate.
