Slating

We have several NVQ qualified slating installers here at Clark And Son. This particular job was on a wind farm, it was the main building that housed all of the electronic computers for 9 turbines. First the breathable felt membrane was installed followed by treated grade A battens to ensure longevity in the roof. We sourced a Siga 32 slate which we found very reliable and strong which will last a great number of years using copper nails. Maintenance free was key so a dry verge and dry ridge system was also installed, the quality of workmanship we provided shows in the outcome

We have gauged the roof so that the slates will have the head lap they need throughout the roof.
