Well we don't know all the details on this house, but in Vermont there are times that this happens. It is most of the time a slate roof that was laid over a wood shingale roof. So with that the steel nails don't hold up and don't have a good nailer. So after the roof has been up there for 70 years the wind or ever more often in VT is the snow take the slate off in patches.

Why would the roof be damaged from 50 mph winds? I have a slate roof (part new and part old) and have had no damage even in 70mph wind storms.

Hello, In January 2010 we experienced some damage to our slate roof on our home...12x24 slate. The house has been "patched" on many occasions over the past 20 years. I'm assuming it has been patched with some peach bottom and others. This is an insurance case and the company will support a good job being done to repair the roof. Because of the uplift from 50 mph wind, we have alot of broken and daily shifting of slate. I want someone to do a thorough repair of our entire roof from the wind damage. Who in this area would you recommend with regard to impeccable work?..... Someone that will evaluate the job and replace any "ify" slate so that down the road we don't have daily dropping slate and will have a sound roof for years to come. Thanks, Susan and Steve

I re-read your post and now I understand. I thought; assumed, you were looking to buy some slate, specifically Peach bottom. The guy that posted just before you on the same page of the forum has some for sale.

Shake Joe's chain and I am sure he can tell you more since he "wrote the book" I just reread that section the other day. Quite a tome about our favorite product. Good luck!
