This a railway of a roofing cardboard to length is cut, with a projection of about 10 cm should be included. Since the material is slightly sticky and chewy, it is advisable as a tool either to use a special knife or simply hard to bend the cardboard at the point to be cut and with a trowel on this rebate along with sweeping movements from inside to outside to separate them. The railway is now pinned up with zinc-coated cardboard nails, which have a flatter and broader head than normal nails.

The upper edge, roofing plus uncovered area, is a painted with special Dachklebemasse to a width of about 10 cm. With the other cars is the same procedure, whereby this should overlap the others at around 10 cm.

All overlaps will receive the same sealing with Dachklebemasse such as the upper edge.
