How to slate a roof
This video shows you the basics of how to set out a roof for slating, and without understanding the basics of slate overlap and gauge you cannot build a foundation for a good slate roof. Hopefully this guide should help you understand how to slate a roof for small projects without getting into too much technical detail so it becomes overly complicated for beginners.
Please look out for Part 2 of this video which will deal with the process of laying slates, verges, gables ends and abutment walls, finishing with slating to the top row underneath ridge tiles or flashings.
