About Soakers


On tile and slate roofs, soakers are the metal or plastic flashings found between each course of tiles or slates. They offer your roof protection from the elements by keeping out rain from the sides of the roof that slope, for example at a hip or valley. Soakers are also used on junction points and lines where tiles or slates meet walls or windows on your property. Traditionally, soakers are made from lead sheeting, but they can also be made from aluminum, zinc, or copper sheeting. Soakers can also be made from plastic materials. They can be shaped on site in the case of soakers made from lead or metal sheeting, or pre-formed in the case of plastic and some types of metal soakers.

Soaker Fitting and Repairs


Roofing On-Tap can install soakers on all types of tile and slate roofs. Our expert roofers and tradesmen will shape and fit lead soakers to your roof, as well as soakers made from metal, including aluminum and copper. They are also experienced in fitting pre-formed soakers made from various types of durable plastic. Our roofers and tradesmen are also available for roof repairs involving soakers, and will replace any damaged soakers on roof valleys, hips, junctions, and abutments.
