Starting from a roof with bituminous shingles


Stated that, while passing from a part of the slope made with bituminous shingles to a part made with Tegosolar, it's necessary to guarantee the continuous waterproofing of
the roof, it's also necessary to evaluate the minimal overlap of Tegosolar compared to the expected exposure of the shingles. I.e. for Standard or Prestige Elite the minimal
overlap shall be 19,5 cm, while for Prestige Compact it will be 5 cm.

" Once the starting line for Tegosolar is decided, apply a line of Bitustick at 4-5 cm of that line (Fig. 17), unless there are the thermo or self adhesive points making this function
in that position.
" Place the S spacers at 96 cm from the marking (Fig. 17) paying attention to press the upper side, and fix them with large headed roofing nails, stainless steel AISI 304 high
