Easing Courses

- 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.
