I started today. The roof has algae and is dirty, but there is a little mica sparkle.. Seems very hard Raising a slate will almost pull the nails. The exposed portion (7.5") is very black, but the unexposed portion is Gray.

Slates are black seems solid has a ring tone to it. and 9-10-11-12-14 widths x 18" - 3" head lap. Plan on starting at ridge and works down Need advice on what the best tools, how to efficiently remove slates and stack on the roof. I have a fork lift to reach up with pallets. what the best way to stack the slates on the pallets. Should i stack them by width? Thanks for whatever help i get
