Repairing slate roofing can be a delicate process. You need a professional roofer like LMF Roofing with experience working with slate roofs to ensure that the repairs are done correctly. Slate roofing is heavy and can be fragile, so it is important to have the work done carefully or it may lead to more problems and leaks.

Here are some important materials we use when repairing slate roofs:

  1. Replacement slates: We will replace any damaged or missing slates with new ones that match the size, shape, and color of the existing slates.
  2. Roofing cement: This is a flexible material that's used to seal any gaps between the slates and to secure them in place.
  3. Copper nails: These are used to attach the slates to the roof. Copper is a good choice because it doesn't rust and it's durable.
  4. Roofing felt: This is a layer of tar paper that's installed over the roof deck before the slates are installed. It helps to prevent water from penetrating the roof.
  5. Roofing tar: This is a thick, waterproof material that's used to seal any cracks or gaps in the roof.
  6. Slate ripper: This is a specialized tool that's used to remove damaged slates from the roof without damaging the surrounding slates.
  7. Ladders & Scaffold: A sturdy ladder and scaffolding is essential for accessing the roof safely.
  8. Safety equipment: LMF Roofing always wear appropriate safety equipment when working on a roof.
  9. Roofing hammer: A roofing hammer has a flat head for tapping in nails and a sharp end for making holes in the roofing felt.
The lifespan of a slate roof can vary depending on factors such as the quality of the slate, the installation, and the climate. However, a well-maintained slate roof can last for over 100 years. In some cases, slate roofs have been known to last for several centuries. It's important to note that regular maintenance and repairs can extend the life of a slate roof.
