Roof skates are needed to prevent moisture from getting under the roof. Skates are made of different materials: stainless steel, plastic, flexible materials and have different shades. This element is installed after the completion of installation of roofing. Stacked in sequence with a slight overlap and fastened to the roof with nails or screws.

Soft roofing materials must be properly installed on the roof. Please note that if the roof slope of less than 15 degrees, roofing canvas is glued perpendicular to the flow of water. If the slope of more than 15 degrees, the cloth is glued parallel to the direction of the drain. The ridge is made of the same material as the roofing fabric. Before installing the ridge, it is bent in half and laid parallel to the line of adjacency of canvases. Stainless steel ridges are used on slate roofs. They are fixed with long slate nails at a distance of 50-70 cm from each other. Holes are drilled to prevent bending of the ridge. Proper installation of roofing and ridge installation can only be carried out by specialists!
