Maximum practical overlap



Purpose-made hip starters should always be used at the start of each hip and edge-bedded. At vertical hips and at steep pitches above 45 degrees, hip irons must be used to secure the hip starter and be fixed to the hip tree with non-corrodible nails or screws. All other hip tiles must be mechanically fixed in the overlap to the hip tree in addition to bedding.


In most cases ridge endings at the gable are covered by mitred Rake Verge tiles or Barge Boards. Contact your Marley Representative for more information.
