Slate roof repair
Even the best slate roofs do require upkeep. For example, all slates will split under the pressure of expanding ice. Also, metal flashings that are critical to keeping water out will wear away after about 50 years.
Therefore, it is critical to conduct a regular inspection and maintenance schedule every three years, or whenever you notice missing or broken slates, or when you see can daylight through the roof. If left unrepaired, your roof will deteriorate beyond the point of a simple repair.

Slate roofing is a unique material
When properly installed and maintained, slate roofing can last for as long as 200 years. However, there are problems that can occur despite this outstanding durability:
- Poor design that creates high wear areas
- Worn flashings where the metal wears out
- Poor maintenance, simple neglect or the use of inappropriate repair materials like tar or caulking, which can trap water causing rot and leaks.
At GF Sprague, we believe that slate roofing is a true “lost art.” Our slaters and coppersmiths have the experience in working with slate and copperwork to get the job done right, and to provide you with a beautiful, durable roof.
