out on the tiles with hip tite.
Get hip to the top new tile that'll keep a solid roof over your head
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.
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.
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.
Invented by Greg Hay and Peter O'Dougherty
The email address above is your way to contact Greg and Peter, as you can see it is not clickable, but an image. I am sorry but you will have to copy it by hand, as otherwise the guys would very soon get swamped by spam.
I like this one, it's a practical solution to a niggly problem.
However, we have been known to get the odd storm where I live, and after one a couple of years ago I had to fix a bit of tree damage to my mates tile roof.
I had to cut the new end tiles at the hip with a diamond blade in my grinder, and working partly on the roof and partly on a ladder I had to nail blocks of wood to the fascia to support the small cut tiles because there was no gutter.
Leave hip tite and back to home page.

There is no charge for this and also I want it to be very clear to my readers that I don't get or ask for any money from these guys. I am doing it as a service for my readers, but...if one of the inventors happens to get bought out by a multinational company........ well... I hope they remember who their mates are, eh:-)

Just in case you have read a few of these pages and you think that my comments are a bit biased in favour of the inventions, well.... you are right.
