Setting Out Gables
Fix the barge boards in a position where they are level with the tops of the tile battens.

Underlay should turn up against the edge of bargeboard by 38mm.

On top of the tile battens nail an additional 50mm x 38mm gable runner batten up the slope of the roof. This batten should be set 80mm in from the outer edge of the bargeboard (see drawing to right).

Cut the first row of tiles from the bargeboard into random widths so that the profile of the tile does not appear in the same vertical position. Form a 38mm upstand in the cut edge of the tile and abut the upstand edge against the gable runner batten (see setting out gables section).

Start off at the eaves by nailing a Decra Bargecover Eave Closure into position (see drawing to right).

Fold lower half of front edge of barge cover back up and behind front lip of eaves tile (see grey shaded area on drawing to right).

After completion of roof cover these nail heads with Decra finishing kit.

Nail remaining Bargecovers into position using 4 nails skew fixed down the inner face of the Bargecover into the upstand of the tile and 4 horizontally as before. Care should be taken to ensure Bargecovers are correctly lapped.

After completion of roof cover the Bargecover nail heads with Decra finishing kit.
