Without battens, your roof just wouldn't be the same. The first things people usually think of when it comes to roofing, are the tiles. While tiles make your roof look good and keep the elements out, they'd be no good without battens. Battens are the unsung heroes of your roof. Just because you can't see them, doesn't mean they're not a vital part. Because of their importance, you need to make sure you get ones up to the task.

In roofing, battens are used to provide support so roofing tiles can be supplied. Without battens, you'd be unable to have a tiled roof. So your home would be more exposed to harsh weather, letting cold air in and making it harder to heat your home. Without tiles, homes also look less atrractive. So it's imperative you get suitable battens for yourself or your customer.
Battens also create space that helps air flow around the roof. This gives your roof an extra defence against the elements. If any water does manage to breach the tiles, the increased air flow from the battens aids water drainage. So you'll have a roof that dries out faster.
