Using Icopal Bitumen Roofing Shingles to Waterproof Hip Sections
Hip detailing sections are completed after the main bitumen roof shingles are applied.
It is recommended that the hip is first lined with a layer of suitable underlay (see accessories) nailed into position.
As the bitumen roof shingles are laid up the hip they are cut to the line of the hip as for ridge detailing.
The hip is finally finished with hip shingles cut and applied as for ridge shingles.
The hip shingles are applied starting at the bottom and working up the slope, nailed into position ensuring the centre line of the tab is in line with the hip line and subsequent shingles overlapping the lower bitumen roof shingle and tabs secured with an appropriate bitumen sealant.
Take care not to apply too much sealant too close to the roof shingle edges to avoid excess sealant being squeezed out.
Also take care not to drip sealant over finished work.
