About this deal

So after experimenting with all manners of ideas and devices, Jimmy solved the slate roof repair problem with the invention of the Hallhook. The man-made roof slate is considered more eco-friendly for consumers. However, despite their development process taking a more modern approach, their look doesn’t steer far from the traditional slate appearance. Due to their manufacturing, they also have a greatly reduced risk of breaking. Recycled roof slate Fixing with a slate hook involves trimming the head of the slate, thereby losing some head lap (a building inspector may not accept this)

Typically, slate hooks attach to the batten by a spike at the upper end, which is driven into the batten or a hook that wraps around the batten. The use of wrap hooks is not recommended. Only “spike-end” or nail-in hooks are permissible under BS 5534.Suitable for fixing roofing slates on a roof application, these slate hooks are an ideal alternative to the copper nail. Manufactured from 316-grade stainless steel, these hooks are guaranteed in severe coastal exposure conditions in front of the sea or industrial environments. Roof slates are a very popular choice when it comes to deciding which roofing material to use on a pitched roof. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, and increasing the potential selling value of the house, roof slates have a number of physical benefits. Slate is a durable and hard-wearing material that provides waterproofing characteristics to a pitched roof, unlike other roof materials which absorb water. This means that slate is unaffected by frost damage and freezing. What types of slate roof are there?

There are two type of Slate Hook, an over batten type and a drive in type. The use of over batten type is very limited with the majority being drive in type (shown in picture). Slate hooks are common across Europe to fix natural slate roofs, offering a secure and versatile alternative to nails. Due to being secured at four points by four different hooks, these slate hooks are highly effective for wind resistance. The hooked edge at the bottom stops the tile from sliding down, it is supported from turning by the hooks on their side, and the hook at the head secures it to the batten. Repair Fixings Firstly, ensure your rafters or trusses are clean of any splinters or old nails that could damage the membrane. Then roll your chosen roofing membrane along the roof trusses – start from one bottom corner and roll it along to the other corner. Firstly, put the hooked end of the slate ripper underneath the damaged slate, trapping the nail in the hook. Then hammer the handle of the slate ripper, to force the nail out of place.The natural roof slate is exactly what you’d expect.

If you measure from the top of one batten to the top of another, this gives you the batten gauge. This allows you to work out the distance between the battens on the rest of the roof. For example, if your roof is 500cm, and the pre-existing battens are 20cm apart, a total of 25 battens will be required, each 20cm from the previous one. 6. Lay the roof slates
