Requirements

A low pitch elevation single story extension with a lean-to roof:

  • 15-degree pitch
  • Fibre cement slates specified to meet the aesthetics of the main roof and surrounding areas.

Why Easy Slate & Permavent Dry was chosen

Fibre cement slates were unable to installed at the specified roof pitch. An onsite design solution was required, and Easy Slate 600 was used to provide a watertight resolution for the slates.

C&T Bain Ltd installed following our manufacturer fitting instructions and installed the slates using the traditional copper nail application.

The slate covering was installed alongside our Permavent Dry vapour permeable & condensation control as a robust and highly breathable roof underlay.

This Easy Slate System achieved a 40 year product guarantee.
