Roofing Battens

Here at MGN Builders Merchant, we know all about roofing battens - the essential structural elements that form the foundation of your roof. They create a space between the tiles and the waterproof layer underneath, allowing for air circulation that helps prevent moisture build-up and keeps your roof deck healthy. We understand how important they are to keeping your whole roof strong, long-lasting, and working properly.  Because we want to help you make the best choices for your roof project, we're answering some of the most common questions people have about roofing battens. So let's dive in and get you informed!

What are Roofing Battens, and why are they important?

Roofing battens, also known simply as battens, are horizontal supports installed onto the roof's rafters or trusses. They provide a framework for attaching the roof covering, such as tiles or shingles. Battens help distribute the weight of the roof covering evenly, ensuring structural integrity and durability.

How do I install Roofing Battens?

Installing roof battens requires careful planning and precise execution. Begin by spacing the battens evenly across the roof, following manufacturer guidelines and local building codes. Secure them to the rafters or trusses using appropriate fixings, ensuring proper alignment and support for the roof covering.

Do Roofing Battens require maintenance?

While roofing battens are designed to withstand the elements, regular inspection and maintenance are essential to ensure their long-term performance. Check for signs of damage, such as warping, splitting, or decay, and replace any compromised battens promptly. Keeping the roof covering clear of debris also helps prevent moisture buildup and potential damage to the battens.
