Slate roofs are the finest roofs in the world and have been installed on homes for many centuries.
Ryan Restorations are specialists at Slate Roofing, but here we get a chance to enhance our specialty by showing a project consisting of Slate Siding and Copper Roofing.
Traditional Copper Roofing adds elegance, longevity and value to the project. There is no finer roofing material available. And with proper installation, it can last a lifetime. Adding the Copper Roofing to this Slate Siding project is more than a specialty, it is also an art. The random width slate is blended artfully based on how the quarry sends it to you.
Before we arrived, this garage was in needed repair, so it was time to demolish.
Now it was time to begin the building phase of the project.
These next images allow you to see the construction starting to be rebuilt. Ensure to look at the bottom right hand side of the third picture. It will stand out in a moment as we continue to explain the process.
Next we begin to see the true craft evolving. Did you notice how the row just at the bottom of the window is different than the first four rows? This allows you to visualize how the next row will overlay the exposed tile.
This next picture points out that we kept the roof the same until we were ready to work on it. Like our truck?
Something you will not see is where two walls meet. Copper flashing is under each corner slate to keep the water out.
Speaking of copper, let’s introduce something really unique. Notice the chalk lines for diamond layout. Then we began preparing to clad the power box.
We then moved to the Double Lock Standing Seam Roof. This is a traditional folding technique.
We then finished the project with copper cladding around garage door entrance. Normally it is wrapped in Aluminum.
Now we see the completed product, with 3 color blend of slate, Vermont Black, Strata Grey & Semi-Weathering Clear Gray. Semi Weathering will turn like an earth tone after about a year. The project also features copper soffit, copper roof, copper gutters and copper window flashing.
