In Mt Lebanon PA, the knowledgeable roofers at Evans Roofing were happy to come across a beautiful historic home that sadly had an old, damaged slate roof. A local bought the property as a fixer upper, and they were bringing the old home up to modern standards. They’d already done some great work on the home’s exterior, and it was time to protect the whole structure with a new roof.
Slate roofing has always been a popular roofing material option, but it has some drawbacks. While it is durable, slate roof tiles are simply expensive to source, so there’s added cost in roof instruction and any roof repairs. This particular slate roof was also starting to fail just because of its age. There had been some damage as well as roof repairs, but damage builds over time until roof supports are affected.
The Evans Roofing team had a major roof replacement project on their hands, but they were eager to work on such a beautiful old home. First, they completely removed the old roofing materials and hauled them away to be recycled, leaving the property clean. Next, they installed high quality 50-year GAF shingles that had a similar classy slate gray look to them, keeping the historic home design. The crew even shingled over the tin porch to give the home a cohesive look.
The customer was overjoyed not only with the superior protection of the new roof, but with the professionalism and workmanship of our crew. They were especially impressed with how quickly the Evans Roofing crew worked and how clean they left the property. The Mt Lebanon PA homeowner also thought it was “so refreshing to work with a roofing company that kept its word every step of the way.“
