Joe, for us the Slate Roof Bible came along at exactly the right time. About 4 years ago your book convinced us to replace the asphalt roof on our 1929 Tudor with an assortment of red, green, grey, black, and purple slates, complete with copper flashing and gutters. We live in a neighborhood dominated by slate roofs, and ours is the envy of all. It cost a lot, but the alternative investment for that cash would have been the stock market. A recent appraisal has convinced me that our roof has delivered a much better return.
