Roof battens are thin strips of material that may be made of wood, plastic or metal. They’re installed before the tile is laid on the roof and they serve multiple purposes. The ideal installation method for roof battens when installing a tile roof depends on the roof material, its slope, and environmental conditions such as rainfall, temperature and wind.
On roofs with a steep slope, tiles are usually fastened to battens. The tiles should be fastened into battens to ensure they remain fastened to the roof. In regions where high winds are common, roof tiles are usually fastened to the battens to prevent them from lifting from the roof deck.
Battens elevate the roof tile off the roof deck, and this ensures that water drains off the roof. How you install battens can affect the drainage efficiency. For example, horizontal battens run perpendicular to the slope of the roof and tend to trap moisture, so a 1-inch gap every four feet is necessary to allow for drainage. Horizontal battens should also be installed so that there is a clearance of at least 6 inches between the batten and the valley to allow concentrated water flow. Vertical battens are referred to as counter-batten systems and provide a minimum of 3/4 inch of space between battens for drainage.
Installing a batten system beneath roof tile can offer some energy savings, as well. The space between the roof deck and the tile creates a thermal barrier. This barrier cools the deck and the structure in hot weather.
