Compared to asphalt shingles, slate roofing tiles are heavy and expensive, but they also provide a beautiful look to historic homes and preserve their value. Pittsburgh homeowners with slate roofs may get worried when they need roof repairs, as slate roofing tile is a high end roofing material that can be difficult to match and repair. Slate roof repair does need to be completed by a skilled, experienced roofing contractor, but that doesn’t make it impossible.
In Pittsburgh PA, Evans Roofing and Gutters, the premier roofing contractor in Pittsburgh and surrounding communities, has decades of experience with all kinds of roof repair from flat roof membranes to premium materials like slate roof tiles. The homeowner had asked their neighbors, who whole-heartedly recommended Evans. After a call, we got out to the home right away for a professional roof inspection, which uncovered several missing roof tiles on their hipped roof and also some shifted tiles on the back of the roof. All of this damage had led to leaks in multiple areas.
The Evans Roof and Gutters team were able to complete their slate roof repairs quickly. We replaced 17 roofing tiles on the hipped roof, as well as reattached those shifted tiles so that they were secure and protecting the home in the best way possible. Just to add more protection to the home, we also added sealant to the dormer, vent pipes, and flashing. These areas can be susceptible to leaks.
The homeowner is glad his roof has been serviced, and he doesn’t have to worry about possible leaks coming in where the slate wasn’t properly protecting the roof. He was very happy at the speed at which the Evans Roofing and Gutters crew responded to his call and got the slate roof tiles repaired on his home. The fact that we added even more protection shows how we care.
If you have a slate roof in Pittsburgh, Evans Roofing and Gutters is the right roofing company to call when you need repairs, when you’re experiencing leaks, or after a storm.
