Purpose

A roofing fillet's main purpose is to divert rain water from remaining on a roof or flowing down a wall or chimney. Roofing fillets are also used to protect joints on roofs.

Description

Roofing fillets are triangular pieces of wood. They are made from 2-inch square pieces of wood cut into triangle shapes, typically 45 degrees. They are placed under the slates of a roof causing the roof to be angled.

Details

When roofing fillets are used, water exits the roof without leaving water marks on the walls or getting into the walls or chimney of the house. These fillets force water to run to the gutters of the house.
