Hey Scottish slater; Where are you located in Scotland? Anywhere near St. Cyrus? I have been corresponding with a architect there and he is building a round building for his office and is putting on a slate roof. Maybe you could contact him and give him a hand.

Stu, when they clip the corners of the slate like that at the outside edge, it will direct the water back onto the roof so it won't flow over the side. Some people do it and others don't

What slates have you used to create this? They appear quite thick with well dressed edges?

I am looking for ideas to replace my cedar shingle roof. Can you give me a starting point for developing a rustic look on a wooded chalk slope in Southern England? I know that there is a Vermont Weathering slate, for example. Thanks:)

A word of defense: the Owner and his wife had a clear idea of what they wanted, educated themselves about slate roofs, and really were a pleasure to work with.

I initially wanted to put on a VT black or strata grey in standard thickness, but they had a clear concept that was less formal and not stuffy. They are very happy with the end aesthetics and workmanship. Shawn and JoAnne w/ Camara did a great job of matching colors for us.

We are proud of our work.

Rough sawn 1"x10" poplar. Charlie planed this for us too, so everything was a smooth as the carpenter's framing.

great job! i love the copper above the window! and what a victory, a natural slate roof installed properly on a modest home. you got through an american home"owner", "builder", architect and code with a pure product. even no ice guard!?! you're the man!

Random width, 10% heavies (up to 1" thick), four color blend (40% semi weathering grey/green, 20% royal purple, 20% mottled green & purple, 20% unfading emerald green), 5" headlap at the eaves. No damned ice/water shield, tar, caulk, glue, screws, ring shank nails or any of the other stuff that only makes the roof difficult to repair. 100% slate & copper, with a touch of 50/50 solder.

Still waiting on the architect (!) to specify the snow guards, which will now have to be retrofit since we finished everything else several months ago. We're also going to fabricate some custom copper chimney caps whenever the owner selects a schematic design. Can't wait till they get all the rest of the exterior work finished so I can get some nice photos.
