How We Remove Slate Roof

In order to remove a slate roof, we follow these four general steps.

  1. Use a slate ripper that cuts and/or pulls out the fixing nails between the slates.
  2. Pull the damaged slate out of the roof.
  3. Remove all nails associated with slate tile.
  4. Insert the replacement slate tile back into the right position.
