The roof is the most important element of the construction of the building. Even in a country house, it should be a solid roof. The use of exotic clay -haired, clay -kamysh, as well as drain roofs is far in the past, today, during individual construction, other more practical roofing materials are used. To date, they use mainly thin steel, as well as aluminum, clay or soft tiles, as well as metal tiles. Herful popularity are slate or asbestos -cement wavy sheets.
I want to recommend an excellent company that performs high -quality roofing work in g.Poltava. Their site is available at the Internet.
The slate has several advantages: it is inexpensive, easy to use, resistant to high temperatures and frost, also showed himself well with varying degrees of humidity. In addition, he is fireproof, has a small weight and he does not need special care. The service life has been calculated in decades. The slate has standard dimensions: components of 120×68 cm with a thickness of 0.55 cm. Trays, corners, skate elements used in the arrangement of roof slate are also produced.
Since slate is a hard coating, it does not need a continuous crate for its installation. When working with it, you need bars of 5×5 cm with a step equal to 50 cm. Before laying the slate, it is recommended to stuff side slopes on the crate of special wind boards. They allow you to turn the structure into a more stable. Given the steepness of the roof slopes, it is necessary to calculate the overlap on the vertical line of sheets.
To fix the slate on the crate, screws and broad -headed nails are not less than seven centimeters long. The holes for their installation are only drilled, and the diameter of the holes themselves should be wider than the diameter of the nail itself for several millimeters. Under the hats, you need to put either rubber or steel washers, originally processed with a sorikoy bar. Clogging of nails must be carried out extremely carefully so as not to lead to the split of the fragile sheet.
At the final stage of the laying of the slate, the skate is installed, which overlap the joint of the upper rows from the right, as well as the left slopes. If you can’t purchase factory skates, then buy strips of galvanized steel, or use two boards that are knocked down at an angle. Take care of the pre -processing of the boards with the help of olifa, carry out their drying and staining with the help of Iron Surik.
