  1. I've been pricing my roofing for my SIPS build. As it's a SIPS roof, I had been looking for membrane, counter batons running vertical then normal batons so I had the ventilation space. I will be using a slate roof (Cupa heavy 3) in Scotland. Now one roofer has said Batens are harder than sarking to fix slates on and hence says, I should do the counter batens, but then fit sarking (22mm thick, 150 wide, etc) and that would be better and reduce costs for labour install. I need to check cost implications but thoughts anyone from a technical (or any other) perspective???
  2. Hi, I’m looking for some advice please. We have had our roof re-slated and this is how they have done the turret. We are worried that water can seep in as the slates don’t seem very flush. The scaffolding is still up so we could push them to fix it, but they are saying that it’s normal and to do with the slope of the turret. Would be good to have an expert opinion on if it’s ok to leave like this?
  3. Currently I'm trying to nail down (pun intended) some of my choices while we are for planning permission on our design. Rural property in Scotland (so it's wet and windy), which will be SIPS or TF. It will most likely be some from of slate effect concrete tile, like marley edgemere or something or similar mainly due to cost considerations (See more below). I had done a lot of reading and made some notes to ensure the build up detail was correct and had marked down to allow for counterbattens and then battens so as to let water drain etc. Which made perfect sense and seems to be a logical choice. This was until 2 days ago when i came across this blog entry by @Thedreamer which has no battens and the slates go directly into the sarking. Which has completely confused me now. So back to the point of this thread....when to use battens/ counterbattens / and when you need to?? As a side note - I found the above thread when searching about Cupa 3 heavy slates as I would like a slate roof - but from quick searches over the past few months it seems as though it's considerably more expensive. But I am struggling to quantify this at the moment as I can't seem to find the right info while searching - so if anyone has any good links to notable thread or has previously done a cost comparison then that would be much appreciated also. thanks
