The smaller rod is used to fix batons around hips and valleys and saves a lot of time messing around with a tape. Cutting and bending At roof terminations and intersections tiles are cut to fit allowing for a 50mm bend in the tile. It is this turn up/down that provides the waterproofing of the roof. It is important to bend a sufficient upturn or water may be blown under the ridge or hip. I have found by taping the jaws of the bender with several layers of duct tape it allows the tiles to be gripped firmer without damaging the paint of the tile. Aim to use half the tile per cut. This will leave you enough metal to get another cut for the opposing side. Valley cutting Marking and cutting the valley at ground level gives a much neater appearance. Instead of measuring each tile cut individually the tiles are laid along the ground as if they were on the roof.
For roofing it is entirely another story as you will need professionals who are specialized in this type of work. The instructions from the manufacturer have to be followed to the last detail if you want to reap the benefits of the warranty which is being offered. There will be special instructions for preparing the surface under-laying and so on. Metal roofing tiles offer an attractive solution to modern roof coverings. Pressed metal tiles come in a number of different styles mimicking more traditional clay or slate roofing. Metal roofing tiles have come a long way since their introduction 50 years ago. The first tiles introduced had a bitumen coating which tended to melt in hot climates.
However you use these tiles in your home make sure to look around before making your final purchase. You should never just settle on a tile because you cant find the color or pattern that you really want. Where you put this tile and how well it blends with the rest of your room will determine whether the decor is a warm success or a strange blunder.
