How to use Ridge Tiles

  1. Once you have finished cladding or decorating your roof, glue your ridge tiles into position using PVA adhesive. Allow approx. 1mm joints if you intend to grout them in. Leave to dry.
  2. Ridge tiles can be cut, if laid flat, using a craft knife and a ruler, or shaped by rubbing on medium grade sandpaper. Special angles and sizes can be provided on request.
  3. If you are grouting in your ridge tiles then mix up some Mortar/Grout mix as per the instructions on the packet. Carefully fill your joints, masking any areas you do not wish to grout.
 

How to use Chimney Pots

  1. Once you have finished cladding or decorating your chimney stack, glue your Chimney Pots into position using PVA adhesive and leave to dry.
  2. Mix up some Mortar/Grout mix as per the instructions on the packet. Using a small knife or spatula spread the cement on to the top of the stack around the base of the chimney pots as flaunching. Leave to dry.
  3. For an older appearance use a water based black stain/paint to weather it.
