SLATE ROOF REPAIRS ROSSENDALE
Slate roofs fitted correctly can last for years on end without needing any repair at all, but after a certain amount of time it can deteriorate as anything. The thing we find most in Rossendale is the nails used to hold the slates in position have rotted resulting in ( slates slipping) if noticed in good time Most Cases this is an easy fix, we use copper tags to fix the slates back into place ensuring it will not slip again. If a slipped slate is not noticed in a reasonable amount of time it is possible to cause you alot of damage to your home and roof.
water can penetrate the battens and start to rot, which in these cases the only option is to strip the roof to repair it.
