When it comes to hip and ridge of your DaVinci imitation slate tiles, there are some steps that you need to take to assure a successful installation.
After the slate alternative field tiles have been installed, a minimum of a 6" wide piece of non-corrosive metal or UV stable EPDM or equivalent should be installed over the hips and ridges. In other words, the metal should extend at least 3 inches from the center point on either side of the hip or the ridge.
There are two ways to start applying DaVinci hip and ridge - you can either install a double course of our hip and ridge slate roof alternatives on the bottom of the hip or you can miter the first two slates installed. If you are looking for more visual instruction on how this is accomplished, it is best to reference our DaVinci Slate Installation Guide where there are diagrams of how this is done.
Should you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to reference our DaVinci Slate Installation Guide to clarify any questions or concerns that you may have. Of course, if you have additional questions or concerns after reading through our installation guide, feel free to get in touch with our customer service department so that they may guide you in the right direction.
