    Hi, what's the easiest for a novice with plenty of 450mm lead to do?

    I'm more confident mitreing the tiles than doing anything fancy with the lead so thought a soaker underneath would be the best bet?

    Is it just a case of positioning centrally over the rolls and hip trays, fixing the tiles over and trimming the lead? Will it involve any complicated shaping? Should I trim the battens down?

    Thanks.

    Thanks, I had seen the Redland version that goes under the tiles as well. Problem seems to be getting hold of anything at the moment, my local Rinus branch had no clips and no battens the other week!

    I was all set to order this till I clocked the delivery charge! I guess they'd bring it round on a lorry. A few other places seem to want £20-30 plus vat to deliver these and probably out of stock. I'll try contacting Marley/Redland directly in the week, sort of hence me asking how difficult a lead saddle underneath is?
