Roofing – Slating

Roofing – Slating


In this video you will see how slates are secured,
how lead is used to construct a valley,
and how ridge tiles are installed Slates are laid in alternating rows to ensure that
the roof acts as a one complete unit,
similar to how a block wall is constructed Slates are secured to the row below them using
copper disc rivets, and are also being secured to
the wooden battens using nails Here we see how lead is used to seal up
the valley of a common roof As lead is highly malleable, it is easily moulded
into the required profile Lead is also used to seal the roof around
a chimney. The lead is secured to the blocks,
then plastered over as seen Once the slate or tiles have been secured,
the lead flashing can then be unfolded
and moulded into place The lead in a valley is laid in strips,
this allows the lead to expand and contract,
depending on the weather As soon as the valley has been finished,
slating can continue once again Slates are laid in rows, starting at the eaves.
Note the double batten near the eaves, these
are used to secure a row of ‘undereaves’ slates Eaveslates ensure that rain water will not seep
through the joints of the bottom row of slates
and enter the roof Slates are measured and cut to suit
the valley of the particular roof Eaveslates are normal slates which are
shortened on-site and are secured
to the battens as normal Two rows of eaveslates are installed before
a full-length slate can be fitted in place An aluminium flashing is also used to overlap
the slate at verge level to ensure the
roof remains water-tight Vents are installed to supply ventillation to the
attic-space to prevent a build-up of moisture Vents help to prevent wood-rot in the
roof structure by allowing moisture in
the attic space to escape Vents are installed in the same way as slates,
by securing them to the battens underneath Once all slates are in place, the ridge tiles can
be installed. Ridge tiles overlap the slates and
prevent water from entering the roof structure Ridge tiles are secured to the
ridge board as shown The roof is now complete

  28. Жаль что это не солнечные панели (типа от Илона Маска черепица ) ))))))))

  29. Where are the ´slates´ ? All I saw were cheap ´eternits´.

  30. Lead valleys ! What !? What local building control authourity permits lead to be used !? Lead is a cumulative poison and must not be allowed to pollute the ground water system. Was this filmed in the´third world´ ?

  56. Диванные эксперты продолжайте стелить свой шифер.

  72. Cant beat a good bit of slating you should check out how the Germans do it if you don't already know first class slating done by them the slating I do is so simple compared to real slating

  73. Awesome video, great way of explaining how to put slate on a roof! We would be happy to assist in any future projects supplying your slate!

  74. At the start he's putting the tiles on upside down you shouldn't be able to see any nails

  75. Bravo beau boulot

  76. Красиво смотрится, подойдёт для теплого, сухого климата. Для Москвы не подходит. Влага где нибудь просочится, мороз влагу расширит, цикл за циклом больше. Если герметик, то можно. Дорого. Но красиво. При наличии денег можно. Молодцы.

  77. That piano players going to wear those two keys out!..

  78. In Britain we have slightly different regulations but they all play a part to the same end a good roof http://spmroofing.co.uk

  79. Why are they calling those Trex shingles slate? They tell us a slate roof is good for a century. But I also want to know how long that vinyl material their using lasts.

  80. Без контробрещетки ,обрешетка в течении 8-10лет превращается в труху.

  81. I hate slate… Years down the road you have razor sharp ninja stars falling on ppls heads… High winds branch comes down and you have ninja stars ready to pierce your jugular.

  82. El polo esta prohibido en tuberías y tejados por que contamina las aguas y es un veneno muy peligroso.

  83. parabéns a todos

  84. Что за материал. ? Свинец?

  85. How does the water not just find its way in the seams and go under all those?

  86. Даешь дырок много и разных 🙂

  87. I came to see if there's an easier and quicker way to use these. There is…by roughing the fucking out of it 😳. That bottom course and vent was terrible.
