Sometimes brandy is added to the mixture as well.

bermuda roof Roof construction

In this photo you can see the construction of the rafters and the roof.
The Bermuda Roof has always been built over an open-batten structure (see photo) and material used has always been limestone cut into 18"x12"x1" slate. The slate is bedded in mortar and each row of slate overlaps the previous row by half (9"), therefore all the way up the roof there is approximately 3" of roof material.
