Abutments change in pitch & mansard

Top edge abutmenttop edge abutment

Turn underlay not less than 50mm up abutment.Lay tops tiles and nail as recommended by manufacturer. Fix tiles close to abutment to enable a weatherproof junction to be formed by metal apron flashing. Ensure metal flashing turns up abutment by minimum 75mm.  The flashing should cover the tops tiles by a minimum 100mm. If tops tiles are not used then the flashing should be extended to 150mm.

Turn underlay at least 100mm up abutment. Cut standard tiles and tile-and-a-half tiles as necessary and interleave with metal soakers to form a close weathertight abutment. Form soakers with a 75mm upstand against abutment and fix by turning down over the head of each tile. Dress a metal step flashing closely over the soakers with a lap of at least 65mm.

change of pitchchange of pitch

This detail does not usually require a metal flashing when plain tiles are used. Generally, the tiling continues in the usual way and sweeps around the change in roof pitch. Care should be taken to maintain adequate headlap.     Where the pitch change is significant it may be necessary to increase the batten depth (ie use a double batten) for the first course(s) at the steeper pitch.
Note:   Always ensue that the lower roof is at or above the minimum recommended roof pitch for the tiles.

Set out the tiling battens to ensure that a 65mm headlap is maintained for the mansard tiles. Mansard tiles need to be specified for the particular roof pitches required.
