hi this is my first post...your job looks really nice...as far as the slate, it's hard to tell from pictures..

but i try to stay away from ice and water shield alltogether...and the few times i had to, to be paid i used rosin paper over it...worked ok, but still kinda aggravated me...altering head laps in a roof is tricky, cause if you go from a 6" to a 3" headlap you should do it slowly over successive courses..like 3/4" to 1" per course..you'll know because the slate will be tight to the roof on all four corners. play with it, it will feel right..

this area is pretty well complete. what type of slate is this? (sorta looks like vermont) I got a truck load off a guy who took it off a barn he torn down. this side of house cant be seen really from the ground so it doesn't matter if it doesn't match the black PA slate on rest of house for now.



I'll likely have to wait till next year to work my way around the house since cold weather is coming sooner than later

you can see how looks like pans were extended up... when i tore off some of the older (not sure if original) were under not removed. They didn't extend up as far.


Some of the lower slates were held with drywall screws.. and i found alot nailed with felt paper nails!

Can i put grace I&W membrane over to top lip of the pans where its under slate leaving putting a piece of felt under the top so that its not stuck to the deck then layer felt over? so it would be stuck to top of pans but not attached to deck (other than the nails that go through it for the slate.

turns out one of the previous owners before it was run down by people who lost house live close by. The pans were re done most likely in the early 90s with galvinized with sealant in the joints with no expansion joints. At this time they re did the lower slate..... when tearing off the galvanized looks like that the first row of slate was removed extending the pans up. i was going to bring the first course down and have a increased headlap by adding the other course

At that small a pitch, it shouldn't make much difference

it would prob be easier if i keep all my questions in one generic thread.

so this is where im at...




my drip edge isnt the prettiest but it'll work.

my question now has to do with bending the pans to match the slope.

do you bend the pan so say 3.5 deep on one end and 3.25" on the other i see the only outcome would be that what goes under the slate would be at an angle.??


also where my drain is it drops a bit, im thinking ill need to make 2/3 pans to get the grade without kinking the copper.
