However, over time, even the most well-maintained roofs can require repairs or replacement due to weather damage, age-related wear and tear, or internal structural issues from poor installation. By addressing these issues in a timely manner, homeowners can help to extend the life of their slate roofs.

Ways to Detect that Your Slate Roof Needs to Be Repaired 

Although slate roofs are some of the toughest kinds out there, they can still suffer from wear and tear, especially after a major storm. To avoid having a poorly insulated home, get in touch with our professionals at the first signs of damage.

A slate roof likely needs troubleshooting when:

  • Some of the slates are missing or cracked: Even when just a few tiles are broken or missing completely, this can be a sign that the roof needs repair. This can happen due to weather damage or age-related wear and tear.
  • There are clear signs of leaks: Are there large water stains spread across the ceiling or walls, or even discolored patches on the floor? Leaks can be caused by damaged or missing slates but can also result from problems with the flashing or gutters.
  • The roofline appears to be sagging: If it is noticeable that the roofline is sagging or uneven, this can be a sign of deeper structural damage. In many cases, a sagging roof can be caused by water damage, age-related wear and tear, or problems with the underlying structure when it was installed. 

What Is Involved in a Slate Roof Replacement?

The process of replacing a slate roof is quite complex, which is why it is key to always seek professional support. Experts always begin by inspecting the existing slate roof to determine the extent of the damage and identify any underlying structural issues. Next, the current slate tiles are carefully removed and disposed of, taking care not to damage any underlying roof structure. Another underlayment must then be installed to provide a moisture barrier and protect the roof structure from water damage. At this stage, roofers can add new slate tiles, starting at the bottom of the roof and working upwards. Once the installation is complete, the area is cleaned up and any debris is removed by our dependable experts at Slate Copper And Tile Roofing.

Our skilled techs always do the job right from the beginning. Trust our team to provide great services for slate roof repair and replacement in Akron when you call at (440) 306-7667.
