Please note, whilst the total length of each ridge is 445mm, each ridge will only provide coverage of 180-200mm. To ensure a watertight seal each ridge must overlap the previous one to prevent leaks reducing the coverage. To help with the fitting of each ridge only half the length of the ridge tile is covered with the slate finish, the other half has a mat finish with indents to show where the next ridge should overlap and the nails fitted.
