Leslie: We commonly repair asbestos roofs like this. It is not at the end of its life, but may have decades remaining. Can we get a closer look at the asbestos tiles? There is some info on our web site at http://www.slateroofcentral.com/asbestos_repair.html.

Rodney, that depends on how much and how high and how steep! Are they hand split shakes or cedar shingles? If they are shingles you shouldn't have any felt laced between the courses, but you are still going to have to pull the nails out from two rows of shingles or shakes to get the ones below out. You are going to want to get them all out too, because it will really be a pain to get them to go back in with the old nails in the way. A slate ripper works for that! As far as costs, it depends on the three factors I mentioned before and also how hungry you are. Why didn't they replace the gutters before they redid the roof? Stupid question huh? Good luck.

Hey OLD SCHOOL, funny meeting you here.

I have a ? for you.

I need to remove fairly new cedar shakes to reline a yankee gutter, and do not no the scope or cost to bid for the removal and re-placement of the shakes. How much and how hard/easy is it?

Thanks
Rodney Richardson

It looks like they were installed over wood shingles to me. They cemented the heck out of the roof around the chimney, which needs to be tuckpointed. If they do, make sure they don't break any slates.

A roof is like landing an airplane. If you can walk away from it, you are fine. If a roof doesn't leak, leave it alone.

Sorry for the delay, had to get the film developed. Let me know your thoughts as this doesn't look like it needs a new roof (but who knows), and there are no signs of a leak inside.

We are trying to purchase a home which has a abestoes roof, with missing tiles. We had one co come out an say we needed a whole new roof. "Current roof will last 1-2 years" How do we know if this is accurate and that they are not trying to get us to purchase something not needed
