Details

HIP TITE - WHAT'S IT DO? Provides a platform for cement placement where the hip tile hangs into the gutter. WHY GET IT? To fix the hole that is usually present in older tiled roofs WHERE CAN I GET IT? It's the blot on most roofer's copybooks. There's not enough support for the starter and row starter tiles on the corner of the roof so you balance them against one another, or prop them up with some scraps of fibro while the mud is setting and pray to your God of choice it all somehow holds together. Only in 30 per cent cases it doesn't. The tiles collapse in on themselves or crack. Cement runs into the gutter. Birds, rats and possums make their way into the eaves of your client's home via a hole in the hip-starter tile. After Sydneysider roofer Peter Doherty, 46, discussed every roofer's secret shame with his inventor neighbour Greg Hay, 46, the Hip-Tite was born. "It's a ridge-cap starter tile fixture," Greg explained. "If you're retrofitting it, you remove the old Hip tile, chip off all the old broken cement, place the Hip-Tite onto the fascia with the aid of nails or self-tapping screws. If it's an aluminium fascia place the new cement down the tiles and onto the platform then bed the hip-tile into the cement and smooth off." Beauty, not only will your customers be free of waterstained eaves and possums in their attic, you'll save more time and make more dosh. "Tilers no longer have to fit small pieces of tile right up to the last inch and fiddle around cutting small pieces with a tile cutter. And of course you'll no longer be scratching around looking for building waste to prop up the tiles. And you can even charge extra because your providing people with a great solution to an obvious problem."
