Use broken-bond practice only! Marley Radiatnt Barrier is compulsory for pitches below 26ᴼ in all cases and Radiant barrier or Undertile Membrane is compulsory for any pitch above 26ᴼ and in all cases. Ensure that all battening is in an absolute level plane. On exposed sites and at rafter lengths exceeding 8m the tile headlap must be increased to 120mm. However, increased headlap is not as effective as a steeper pitch. Due to natural variations in the raw materials and the occasional occurrence of efflorescence on concrete products, absolute colour uniformity on the roof cannot be guaranteed with Standard Through colour tiles.
