Slate Roofing Details

Hips on a slate roof can be either mitred, saddled or have a metal flashing.

Saddled hips require a lathe nailer on both sides thick enough to support the hip tiles from the field tiles. The width should allow nailing and keep a 75 mm (3") lap over field tiles. Nail heads should be covered with elastic cement between successive tiles.

On mitred hips, field slates are cut flush at the apex to match slates on the other side. The unexposed portion of these slates is covered with a metal flashing which should extend 50 mm up from the tiles being covered.

NOTE: See the Standard for additional requirements.
