Roof Shingles

General Information and recommendations

A great looking cabin looks even better with a quality roof. The best and most cost effective covering is glass fibre and polymer reinforced bitumen roof shingles.

The bottom of tiles is coated with adhesive polymer-reinforced bitumen layer protected with easily removed silicon membrane. As a result of a little exposure to the sun, the overlapped tiles stick to each other thus forming a double waterproofing layer, which guarantees excellent leak resistance of the roof.

Bitumen flexible tiles are designed for pitched roofs (from 12°) used in fully residential, industrial and other buildings, including garden buildings.
The top layer of tiles is surfaced with mineral granules that give colour to the tiles and ensure high UV- protection and weather resistance qualities. The granules are cured in high temperature (pigment burned-in into the surface of granules) and guarantees long durability of the colour. Composition of the tiles: durable and highly resistant fibre glass base coated with polymer- reinforced bitumen mix made of high quality bitumen and aggregate.

ATTENTION:
Southern Log Cabins  is not responsible for water leakages due to incorrect tile installation or improper preparation of the roof deck. If you are not 100%, seek professional advice, or use our cabin erection service.

NOTES: 
We strongly recommend using wide headed (up to 15-25 mm long) nails to fix the bitumen shingles.

If you are going to put tiles at outside temperature lower than +15°C degrees, please preheat black sealing belt zones or use extra sealants to ensure waterproofing.

A small deviation in colour of the tiles is not a defect. It is typical of flexible tiles of any producer. In order to reduce colour difference during installation it is recommended to mix tiles out of 5-6 packs at random. The tiles should be installed in diagonal lines.

In order to avoid shingle sticking to each other in a pack they should be protected from direct sunlight. Each pack should be bent and shaken before opening; this helps to separate the shingles from each other.

It is strongly recommended that you do not walk on the roof in hot/sunny weather because the cover might be damaged. Special ladders should be used for this purpose.
