Slate Roof Specialist

Slate Roof Repair

As a slate roof specialist, Michael J Harris has little competition. That’s because most roofers are not in business long enough to have the craftsmanship and expertise to properly repair slate roofs. Only older and historic homes have slate roofs (too expensive to use on newer homes). Our company’s 100-year-plus history provides us with the unique capability to work on slate roofs. 

We recommend slate roofs be properly finished with copper flashing and gutters. As you can see it makes a huge visual difference. We also highly recommend adding snow guards because slate can be slippery when wet and the guards alleviate huge sheets of snow coming down at once. Dumping big sheets of snow can take down the gutters and ruin the landscaping. They are relatively inexpensive to install.Asslate roof specialists, Michael J Harris has little competition
