Before & After: Slate Roof Replacement
Slate Roof Replacement
This home’s front main roof and porch roof were leaking and the slates were in bad condition. We removed the old materials down to the wood decking. Unfortunately, some of the decking was rotten from repeated water exposure, so new wood was also installed on the porch. (Although planks are the correct wooden decking for a slate roof, this porch had been built in the 60’s with plywood decking, so we copied what was there.) Then Vermont Semi-weathering Gray Black slate was installed, a beautiful replacement. Also included were copper flashings and galvanized snow guards.
