What do slate roofing services include?

Slate roofing services include all the tasks required to properly lay on slate tiles on your property’s roof. Your slate roofer can put on new slate tiles or do slate roof repair and replace only the damaged slate tiles if needed.

Your hired roofing expert can assess the slate tiles and your roof, remove old tiles, replace or install new decking; they then proceed to install the slate tiles. Slate roofers can ensure the installation is planned and implemented well so you have a roof that can last for generations.  

Assessing the tiles and roof 

Your hired slate roofer begins by going up on your roof to make an assessment. They can take the roof’s dimensions which includes measuring the length, width, area and the degree of slope on your roof. Your roof’s dimensions guide your slate roofer as to the thickness, the number of tiles for complete coverage and the type of installation that’s appropriate for your slate roof.  

Removing the old tiles 

As part of home maintenance, your slate roofer can remove any old tiles, whether it’s a spot slate roof repair job or complete slate roof replacement. They can use the appropriate tools to remove old, worn or damaged tiles to make way for new ones.  

Slate roof repair: Replacing new decking

Your slate roofer inspects the underlying decking. They can check if the decking is durable enough to support slate tiles and serve as a solid foundation for them. Should the decking be sufficient to support new slate tiles, your slate roofer proceeds with installing them.

If the decking is not sturdy enough, they can replace the decking and reinforce the underlying roof structure with new decking. They can also do slate roof waterproofing and install the appropriate waterproofing material before laying on the tiles if needed.  

Slate roof replacement: Installing new tiles

If you don’t have the slate roof tiles ready, your slate roofer can buy these for you, but this can cost extra. Once the slate tiles are prepared, they inspect them for pre-drilled holes. If the tiles aren’t pre-drilled, some slate roofers can punch holes on them as part of the service package.

They can recommend and install hooks if your roof slope is at an angle of at least 25 degrees or more, and use nails if your roof is at a less sloping angle. Before installation, your hired slate roofer can cut and trim the slate tiles to fit your roof and adequately cover any slopes, valleys or wrap your chimney if necessary. They can ensure that the tiles have the right overlap in their lower and upper course, so your roof has a watertight seal.
