120 Year Old Slate Roof Repaired 

A 120 year old slate roof was repaired in Nashville, TN. This home located in the Belle Meade area of Nashville had a beautiful existing natural slate roof that was estimated to be 120 years old! This stunning roof included copper metal valleys and flashings and decorative slate hips and ridges.

While the existing slate roofing tiles were in great shape, the 120 year old copper was beginning to rust. In addition, the years had taken a toll of the hips and ridges which had been improperly repaired over the years with tar, caulking and even duct tape! Needless to say, this was a problem that needed to be addressed.


 Carefully Reusing Existing Slate

Our crews carefully removed the existing slate tile in all areas where copper accent roofing was located. This included the valleys as well as other flashing areas. After the area was carefully prepped with the old copper being removed, new ice and water was installed to make a water tight joint.

New 16 gauge copper terne metal was installed in the valleys and copper flashings replaced. Once all of the copper flashings had been replaced, the existing slate tiles were carefully replaced

 Slate – Beauty and Durability

Slate roofing stands as a testament to timeless beauty and unmatched durability. Each slate tile, meticulously crafted by nature over millennia, brings a unique character to the roof it adorns. The rich, natural hues and textures of slate create an elegant and sophisticated aesthetic that enhances the appeal of any structure, from historic landmarks to modern homes. Beyond its aesthetic allure, slate is renowned for its exceptional durability, with a lifespan measured in centuries rather than decades.

Resistant to fire, rot, insects, and extreme weather conditions, slate offers unparalleled protection, ensuring peace of mind for generations to come. Its enduring beauty and steadfast strength make a slate roof a symbol of architectural excellence and a wise investment in both form and function.
