Generally speaking slate roofs are extremely resilient to weather damage and can last the lifetime of your home.
Although nails that hold the slates in position will eventually waste away, meaning that roof slates are often vulnerable to shifting and working their way loose, causing water to penetrate. Severe storms can cause damage to slate roofs, either strong winds lifting the slate if they aren’t fixed correctly or from falling debris such as large tree branches.
Should weather damage occur, slate roof repairs should be executed immediately to prevent further water damage. You can trust The Slate Roofing Company with their ample experience in slate roof repairs.
