Bedded hip with hip ridge tiles

lay courses of underlay over hip with overlaps of not less than 150mm. Cut and fix tiles closely at junction.

Fix hip iron to hip rafter or hip batten with galvanised steel screws.

Lay hip tiles by continuously bedding at edges and solidly bedding with tile slips inserted into mortar at joints between hip tiles.

European Standard BS EN 5534 requires all ridge tiles, including ridge tiles used down the hips, to be mechanically fixed.  We can supply cleats and screws to do this.  The end ridge tiles in a row (both top and bottom) should not be secured with a cleat, but instead should have a hole drilled in and then be secured by a screw through a rubber washer.

Shape first hip tile neatly to align with corner of eaves and fill end with mortar and slips of tile finished flush.

Note: The use of ridge hip tiles should be avoided where possible in favour of the use of bonnet or arris hip tiles.

hip with ridgeroll

Hip with ridge roll ventilation system

European Standard BS EN 5534 requires all ridge tiles, including ridge tiles used down the hips, to be mechanically fixed.  We can supply cleats and screws to do this.  The end ridge tiles in a row (both top and bottom) should not be secured with a cleat, but instead should have a hole drilled in and then be secured by a screw through a rubber washer.

It is important that the ridge hip tiles are NOT mortared in if the Tileline Ridgeroll ventilation system is being used.  Instead, the ridge hips are secured with special clips (supplied as part of the system) and air is left to circulate between the ridge tiles, thus providing the ventilation.
