Why is it so difficult for people to understand the concept of a threaded message board?

I also need some help identifying a slate roof. House was built in 1940 in Penn Hills, PA. Thanks!

Hello Joe,

I am the one who wrote you about the vent flashing yesterday with a request for an idea of cost. I see in this post you are in Frederick, MD. We are very nearby in Rockville MD down 270 right off the freeway, if you'd like to see our beautiful 1889 victorian w/ slate roof. We just bought this historic property in the historic district. Anyway, if you are interested, let us know (and then you might be able to give us an idea of the extent of our vent repair cost! ) Just an idea.

I will not be in New Orleans. I am currently at the International Preservation Trades Workshops in Frederick, MD and will be going to the Natural Building Colloquium in Texas in less than 2 weeks, so no time is left for New Orleans.

Thanks Joe!
I'm going to be at the Tradition Building conference in New Orleans next week. Can I expect to see you around?

It's probably Buckingham and it looks like it's still in good shape. When you use the ripper, you have to be very careful that you don't lift the handle away from the roof when you're pulling on it. Yo may have to use some finesse in getting these slates out since they're shouldered. Tap on the ripper more gently and try to nudge the nails out slowly. If necessary, pull on one nail, then the other, then back, and so on, until you nudge the slate out.

Also, this example does have a glisten to it on the back. Could this be Chapman?

I was able to break this piece in my hand.
Here's my delima: I set up a small platform about halfway up this turret to gain access to the finial. I followed the instructions in the slate bible for removing slates. I have a good stortz slate ripper. Yet many of the slates broke on me when I removed them. Is this an indication that I may have a roof that is close to the end? The house was built in 1904. It is in Louisville, KY
