Installation work

The material can be used to cover the roofs of complex shapes that have even minimal slope. Due to the flexibility of the shingles, it is not difficult to connect the corners, seams and pins with bitumen glue, which will fix the plates of "Katepal".

Roofing, photo of which, better than any words, emphasizes its aesthetics, does not require the use of highly specialized tools, the formation and assembly of auxiliary structures.

Begin work is necessary with the creation of high-quality ventilation: moisture accumulates in each room. For its withdrawal, ventilation equipment is used, but if there are any errors in this system, condensation begins to appear on the airtight surfaces. In winter, it freezes, and with the onset of heat melts and seeps into the insulation. Because of this, mold and fungus appear, which cause the failure of wooden elements. To prevent this from happening, it is necessary to arrange ventilation of the under-roof space so that the intake opening is at the bottom of the roof, and the hood - at the maximum distance from the roof surface of the "Katepal".

The construction of the roof "Katepal" is carried out as follows:

  1. Substrate preparation. Installation of soft roof "Katepal" begins with the preparation of a continuous flat surface, which will be firmly attached to the base.
  2. Installation of lining material over the entire area, on which will be laid flexible tile.
  3. Installation of the cornice and end plates.
  4. Installation of bitumen endovaya carpet, which will serve as a waterproofing. When choosing it, you need to ensure that the color scheme coincides with the color of the final coating.
  5. Marking of the surface with chalk.
  6. Laying of flexible shingles.
  7. Fastening tiles.

Subtlety of technology

  1. The installation of the coating can not be performed on thermal insulation - there must be a through space between them.
  2. To reduce color discrepancy, it is necessary to take sheets from different packs and mix them before installation.
  3. Each web has an adhesive strip covered with an insulating film. Before installation, it must be removed. After that, the canvas must be laid only on the right place, otherwise it will be stuck, and it will be difficult to remove it.
  4. Before opening the package, it must be bent so that the cloths separate from each other.
  5. If the installation is carried out in hot weather, walks along the laid soft tiles can not be - there will be traces.
  6. If there is a minus temperature on the street, it is best to leave the work to heat or heat the sheets with heaters or thermofan, otherwise they will not stick together.
