Everything you wanted to know about slate roofs including how to keep them alive for centuries.

Slate roof is not for everyone, but if you are even considering this venerable roofing material for maintenance purposes or a new installation, you need this book.

Historical descriptions, photos, and schematics explain the development of slate roofing systems. Jenkins taps into his Welsh ancestry and 30 years of slate roof restoration experience to offer a wealth of knowledge.
