    Must be fall, all of its leaves were already on the roof.

    I'll bet the roof will rot out in that area first.

    Nick,

    You need to expand your market and get out of Philadelphia.

    Nick, How do you report on slate roofs. Do you walk on them? Did you defer to slate roof specialist due to delamination/flaking?

    Dave, I do not walk then to prevent damage. Most of the defects on this roof were able to observed from ground level and I was able to put a small ladder up on a rear enclosed porch roof against the slate roof eaves. This one had everything wrong and is at the end of its life. I reported what I saw - broken, missing, and delaminating slates - improper tar seals on ridges and on copper flashings - heavy tree debris buildup with sapling growth in rear roof valley - daylight visible to exterior from attic in multiple areas and evidence of previous water penetration. Immediate repairs needed - anticipate and budget for replacement of roof. The house was 100 years old.

    That's just too funny to see it in writing on a report

    I roofed a house like that about 5 years ago. It was also about a 100 years old. Must of been popular. I framed in the center though to give it pitch and installed EPM in the center and shingles on the sides.
