If you have never fixed a roof tile or slate before but have wondered how to go about repairing or replacing them, then this is the book for you. Many of the technical books about roof tiling and slating are rather vague and conveniently ignore some of the trickier problems and how they can be resolved. However, this practical volume, written by an expert with a vast experience of teaching roof tiling and slating to both apprentices and experienced roofers, rejects this cautious approach. Topics covered: Considers the various types of tiles, slates and roofing materials on the market and their uses, how to estimate the required quantities, and where to buy them Discusses how to check and assess a roof and how to identify and rectify problems Describes how to efficiently 'set out' roofs from small, simple jobs to larger and more complicated projects, thus making the work quicker, simpler and neater Examines the correct and the incorrect ways of installing background materials such as underlay, battens and valley liners Explains how to install interlocking tiles, plain tiles, and artificial and natural slates Covers both modern and traditional methods and skills, including cutting materials by hand without the assistance of power tools Provides invaluable guidance on repairs and maintenance issues, and highlights common mistakes and how they can be avoided
