New Build:    The one piece tray system, OVEP, is located on top of the fascia board, ensuring the stop beads, below the vent, are rested against the front face of the fascia board.

The OVEP is fixed in place through the engineered nail/screw ports, with sleeves to guide fixings into the centre of the fascia board.

Locate the next tray onto the interlocking section of the previous board and fix in place. This process is continued along the whole length of the eaves. The trays can be easily cut when coming to the end of the run. 

Existing Roof:    Start by removing or lifting the existing eaves course of tiles or slates, and make good and damage to the rafters and underlay. The OVEP is fitted in place by sliding up the rafter, and fixed in place as above. The overhang can be lifted so as not to take off the existing gutter when fitting. The underlay is re-laid over the OVEP, and the Tiles or Slates are replaced.
