When carrying out such work, the roof is initially placed on the roof by steaming and insulation. Then, on top, the slate is laid. Before installing slate sheets, carefully inspect each of them for chips, cracks. Also measure the length and width of the sheet to calculate how much slate you need to cover the entire perimeter of the roof. The excess from the sheet is easily cut off with a hacksaw on wood. The slate is laid from the bottom up. At the same time, each sheet is attached to the crate of the roof in the crest of the wave.
