Slate Roofing Repairs
Broken, cracked and missing slates should be replaced as soon as possible by experienced slaters to avoid water damage to the interior finishes, accelerated deterioration of the roof battens, as well as the possible degradation to the structural timber trusses.
Repairing Slate Rooves?
A trained slate roofing expert will assess the roof, and supply you with a proposal to carry out the necessary repairs.
Once the proposal is accepted, we will order the slate from the quarry and set up a start date with you.
The damaged slate is then removed by pulling out the nails with a ripper. Because steel nails are used in South Africa, adjacent slates get damaged and displaced in the ripping process, and these, too, will have to be replaced. The correct replacement slate is then slid into place and secured with a steel hook or clip (conventional roof system).
