    Could someone kindly explain how this is done.

    The cheeks have been battened but i can't work out how to do a nice cut that fits snug to the roof.

    Any help appreciated. :cool:

    u can either measure down from each top corner down onto the main roof or when u sit the tile in the position take a piece of tile batten and lie it up the roof against the tile this will let you mark the angle on the tile u can then use that line as a guide
