Roof Repair

Too bad this repair wasn’t done right the first time.
Now the whole section of roof has to be ripped out, most of it thrown away, and then new slate and copper re installed.

I liked your write about all the flaws with that"repair"
If I were asked to now make it right I would eliminate all the tarred up slates from the back section and use copper for the whole area using slightly wider valley exposure than what now exists.
It looks like a terrible snow catcher,if you have any where this roof is.
Most roofers are not good solder and copper men so they use what they know-makes plenty of work for you and me though.
