There was a very bad hail storm at my home that seriously damaged 2 sides for my roof. I would guess 75% on the side facing the backyard have holes or large chips in them. The side above the garage shows damage to about 50% of the slates. All of the other sides you see when facing the front of the home show much less damage. I would guess 50 slates on those sides total. The home was built in 1933 and has mostly Pennsylvania slate with some Vermont mixed in. My question is this, would it make sense to replace just the two sides that took the worst of the storm and spot repair the other two sides? My insurance is saying that is all they will cover at this point, but I am afraid it will look funny with two new sides and two old ones. It was a very attractive roof that matched all the way around before the storm and I want the same after. What do you see in these cases most often? Here is a link to some thumbnails of photos of the home for reference. http://webpagebuilders.com/butler.htm
Thanks for your time.

Dave, the existing slate can be matched so that the repairs match perfectly. We have done several historic restoration projects very similar to yours and would like the chance to be of assistance.
