Book Description

This 3-part Good Building Guide deals with the upper surfaces of pitched tiled or slated roofing. It concentrates on those aspects of tiling and slating that are most important in ensuring good performance of the completed roof. The objective is to provide a summary of good practice.

Part 1 covers general principles applicable to all forms of tiling and slating, together with criteria where requirements for ancillary materials and practices are common to both tiles and slates, such as weather resistance and underlay specifications and some aspects of work on site. 8 pages.

Parts 2 and 3 describe battening, nailing and product and material quality requirements for tiles and slates.
