Article Fibre Cement

Article Fibre Cement Slates nail fixing holes on the batten line, two rivet holes to hold the tail and an additional hole to accommodate the rivet for the subsequent single verge slate. When trimming to verges, valleys and hips, avoid using pieces less than 150mm wide. If possible, use a slate and a half with the cut edges protected to prevent cement run off due to exposure to weather. In practice A recently completed five bedroom bespokedesigned house (built on the site of an original three bedroom bungalow) showcases the correct method for installing verge slates. The roof was being replaced as part of the larger project. On the original bungalow, concrete roof tiles were installed and the weight of the tiles had made its roof start to dip in the middle. The typical weight per m² of interlocking concrete tiles equals 45- 50Kg. In contrast, a m² of fibre cement slates weighs just 20Kg making them a lighter, versatile alternative and the perfect choice for this project. The slates were chosen by Mid Kent Roofing and professionally installed according to the relevant British Standards. Particularly worthy of attention is the verge detail, as seen in the photograph (left) showing double slates cut to a slate and a half. With two rivets and three nails, there is very little chance that environmental conditions will affect the verge slates, which, as discussed, can be vulnerable to lifting if fitted incorrectly. *Full details on all aspects of fibre cement slate installation are included within the guide.
