Fix a cover special nails which hat has diameter of 8 mm. Otherwise, the nail will pass material through, having damaged it. Covering the second slope of a roof, stack the following leaf of a lining carpet with an overlap. Glue edges bituminous glue. Thickness of the put layer of glue should not exceed 1 mm that the covering was not dissolved.
