It has certainly been done, but it could also cause problems. Is there any leakage on the slate roof now? You will change the whole dynamic of the slate roof when you do that. Are you trying to add space and finish off the attic? Just curious.

Hi, I am currently in the process of renovating a 1930s house with a gable slate roof (2x8 rafters with wood sheathing). The current plan is to insulate the roof deck with 3" of closed cell foam and 4.5" of fiberglass batts. Just wanted to know if anyone has done this before. Thank you
