I will be posting content about slate roofing best practices. I have inspected thousands of slate roofs over twenty-two years and worked on slate while in college. I have seen a lot of really great work and craftsmanship and met some good people along the way. But I've also encountered a lot of shoddy workmanship and I hope to explore the good and the bad. Information now abounds about slate roofing. There are many books, articles and a journal or two devoted to the craft and maybe we can highlight a few of those, too.
