My Brother-in-law lives in Boston and he is going to go to the meeting in September, and I am going back to Boston with him for a day or two. How far is that from Boston?

I own a 100 year old multi-family home in Worcester, MA which still has its original slate roof. I live on the top floor of this three story building and I've noticed that when there are severe rain storms there will be some slight leaking coming through the lathe and plaster ceiling below the roof. I haven't identified exactly where the leaking is occurring but there are some punch-outs in the front and side of the building where the roof has small ridges that appear to be covered by metal and it looks like the roof is leaking below this area.

I love this roof, its was the slate roof which attracted me to this house when I bought it in 2007, and I was wondering if after 100 years it should be repaired or replaced.

I do not know of anyone in my area who works on roofs like this so I'm looking for help from the right person.

Thanks,

JP
