Grey Granulated Roof Tiles » LightWeight Tiles Foam Eaves/Ridge Fillers
£4.50 Excludes VAT
Our self-adhesive Foam Eaves/Ridge Filler Pair can be fully utilised on Gable Style Roofs that have an equal Ridge and Eaves length. However, they can partially be used on all other roof shapes as well. One half of the gap fillers can be used underneath the lip of the Ridge Tiles and one half in front of the Bottom Batten on the Eaves. Please see our installation guidelines for more information.
PLEASE NOTE Both sides of the roof on a Gabled Style roof will need sealing. Therefore, the foam quantities required will be double the length of the ridge. (See the below coverage information)
Due to these strips being profiled to the exact shape of our tiles, they are unsuitable for use on hips (due to the diagonal variations). We therefore recommend using Flexim Roof Putty as a gap filler where the roof has hips. Unfortunately, Flexim Roof Putty is only able to be used in conjunction with our granulated tiles and not the smooth.
The purpose of the Ridge Filler section of the pair, is to seal the gap underneath the ridge tiles. The Eaves Filler section is to be used in front of the bottom batten, to hide the batten and minimise entry of insects, for example.
Maximum Depth: 20mm
Each strip can be compressed by up to 50%, giving versatility to various roof pitches.
For roofs which do not have an equal ridge and eaves length (All roof shapes other than Gable) please allow enough foam filler pairs for the total length of the Eaves. Then discard any Ridge Sections that aren't required. Unfortunately, we are unable to sell the sections of the pairs individually or provide refunds for any partially used pairs.
“ We wanted a covered patio area and discovered the website. The tiles are light and were put up in just a few hours compared with a couple of days for concrete tiles. The infrastructure is a lot lighter and the whole project was completed far quicker than if we had used conventional tiles.
Result, very noticeable reduction in solar heating on sunny days, retains heat better when heated on cool days, and is much quieter, rain and road noise greatly reduced. Had a bit of a struggle with the Ubiflex, found it to be ‘floppier’ than traditional lead, more difficult to feed a long length into slot cut in mortar. Once in place, Ubiflex sealants worked well, and it was easy to mould the flashing to fit the tiles.”
