Roof ridge tiles look messy

    My builder started replacing the last bit of the roof today with 6 ridge tiles. He pointed them out to me via a Velux and commented that he doesn't like the new regs as they look a bit all over the place.

    I've done and search and it doesn't seem to be a common problem so wonder if he's doing it right or if there is a trick? It's awkward as he's a mate and he's done a brilliant job of everything else so far. He's probably right and the pics from the web are all new roofs?

    Thanks for pointers before Monday if possible.

    Are they dry fix? Call me old fashioned but I don't think they look as good as mortar bedded.

    Someone has not fitted the extra timbers for the dry fix :(

    Ah "extra timbers" - is there anywhere I can find this please?
    Is this what is missing - ie the brackets (from about 4 minutes)?

    Have a look at the second video about 3 minutes in, compare the installation of the membrane to the mess on your roof :(

    Thanks, it's not awful so I've passed on that video and will leave it to him. He's a good fella and will correct it if it's wrong I'm sure
