The first three
or four courses of a pantiled roof
are often in slate.
These are known as easing courses and offer better protection to the wallhead, can
allow more room to seat a wallplate, and disperse the channels of water formed in the
pantiles which in periods of heavy rain can splash over the edge of rhones.
