The Slate Roof Bible

Understanding, Installing, and Restoring the World's Finest Roof, 2nd Edition

by Joseph Jenkins

Completely revised, greatly expanded and updated version of the award-winning The Slate Roof Bible, with 21 chapters including six that are new: International Roof Slate, European Slating Methods, Roof Inscriptions and Designs, Recycling Slate Roofs, and separate chapters on Chimneys and Valleys. The profusely illustrated full color format of this comprehensive book, with 330 color photos and hundreds of charts and line drawings, has elevated it into a work of art. Yet, the down-home writing style of Joseph Jenkins has converted a potentially tedious subject into a delight.

With chapters on slate roof history, slate geology, roof safety, tools, installation, repairs, flashings, and regional slate quarries, as well as sections on ceramic tile roofs, asbestos roofs, and flat-lock copper roofs, The Slate Roof Bible is a fascinating book on its own, essential for anyone who wants to build naturally and permanently, and a must-have for architects, builders, roofers, designers, historians, and slate roof owners.
