What distance does my first batten need to be up the roof?

What distance does my first batten need to be up the roof?

The values below are based on the distance from the front of the fascia to the top of the batten with the exception of Hardrow and the Concrete Plain Tiles. The distances for these are based on the front of the fascia to the centre of the batten.

Double Lap Tiles such as Hardrow and Plain Tiles use an Undereaves Tile (often shortened to Eaves Tile), and the batten distance is given for these as well.
