SLATE AND TILE RESTORATIONS

This is a multi-dimensional dome with hips separating each area that we were requested to completely remove and relay. The reason why we performed the above operation was the 50 year breakdown of flashings and underlayment’s.
 

SLATE AND TILE RESTORATIONS

This residence was originally installed with iron nails that had rusted out and caused the tiles to fall off the roof. We removed and reinstalled the tile with copper nails and new metal flashings.

Leaky Tiled Roof Repaired
 

SLATE AND TILE RESTORATIONS

A.This chimney and its flashing were a source of leaks for the owner. The problem was broken tile and poor caulked flashings, as well as breakdown of the original flashings after 60 years.

B.We removed tile + installed new 16 ounce lead coated copper flashings, saddles, and counter flashings. Please note how neat the step/flashings renewed are, and the storage of ile removed for replacement of the saddles. i.e. Functiona l flashing between chimney and tile roof.

C.This is the final appearance after the repair and restoration. Notice the new flashing in place and the broken tiles replaced that were to the left of the chimney in picture "A" as shown by the arrow.

B.We cleaned off the surface dirt of this roof as noted.

SLATE AND TILE RESTORATIONS

 
This flat deck was tied into a slate roof with termination bar. (Notice the arrow pointing to the bar) This bar should only be used at wall & coping areas for flat roofs. The bar is used here, causing the shelf to hold water flow from the slate roof. It is not a good connection between the two roof areas. This slate roof was blamed for the leak though the leak was the improper termination of the flat deck. The repair included:

Removing The Termination Bar
Several Courses of Slate
Extending The Flat Up and Under The Slate
Reinstalling The Slate Removed --- This Corrected The Leak.

SLATE AND TILE RESTORATIONS

A.The tile roof as pictured was repaired some 20 years ago with mismatched tiles and improper installation procedures after a tree had fallen on this area. This allowed water entry that broke down the underlayment quickly and caused interior wall damage.

B.This is the corrective procedure that we took in the repair process using scaffolding and equipment as necessary.

C.The job at this stage is almost complete. We replaced the tile with matching tile and installed new underlayment and flashings in proper
order to correct the problem.
