If required, replacement or repairs to fascia boards, soffit boards and guttering is undertaken at this stage. A felt support tray is installed over the fascia boards.
Felt and Battens
Lay a breathable membrane roofing felt over the rafters and fix preservative treated premium timber slate battens. Battens are fixed using 75mm galvanized clout nails.
Install code 4 or code 5 lead flashing and valleys. All new leadwork is treated with patination oil.
Hang slates to all roof elevations. These can be new slates, reclaimed slates, or the existing slates that have been cleaned prior to re-fixing. All slates are fixed using two copper nails and a stainless steel slate hook.
Ridge tiles, Hip tiles and Finials
The original ridge tiles, hip tiles and finials are thoroughly cleaned and placed back onto the roof. Any tiles or finials that are found to be defective or missing can be replaced with an exact match from an architectural salvage or reclamation yard.
