Roofing Battens Cardiff

For roofing battens Cardiff, contact Huw Bolderson. When constructing a traditional style roof for a property, roofing battens are fixed to the roof structure. The tiles and slates that sit on top of the roof are attached to the battens. They help to maintain the structure of the roof and allow the tiles to lay in straight formation on the roof. Due to their strength, they also provide a good anchor for any nails that are used to secure the tiles.

Battens are typically made of timber as it is a strong, natural and dense material. However, battens can also be made from plastic.
