Title: Tiling and slating pitched roofs

Ref Code: GG64
Authors: Harry Harrison

Abstract1: This three 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 have been most frequently observed in BRE site investigations of roofing schemes, which could lead to deficiencies in the performance of the completed roof. The objective is to provide practitioners with a summary of the main good practice criteria. 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. Parts 2 and 3 describe battening, nailing and product and material quality requirements for tiles and slates.
