Newell Roofing Products manufacture metal soakers which may be installed between each course of plain tiles and double lap slates. These soakers weather the junction between a roof slope and an upstand that is parallel with a rafter.
Where to use soakers:
A wall or roof window at a side abutment
A party wall junction
A line of slates or tiles on a curved roof or swept valley
Between two roof slopes at a valley or hip
Where side lap joints are too close on consecutive courses.
Newell Roofing Products metal soakers should never be used with interlocking slates or tiles. Newell Roofing Products metal soakers are an effective way of weathering the inclined edge and vertical junctions of double lap slates and tiles.
Newell Roofing Products soakers eliminate the risk of leakage and damage to your roof. They are neat, dry and ready to use. Our soakers create superior corrosion and abrasion resistance combined with exceptional colour resistance
