New Jersey Slate Roof Removal and Roof Installation
Highland Park, NJ
We removed the slate roof off of this 117 year old house on Lincoln Street in Highland Park, NJ. It was built with four areas of “curved” rafters at the bottom of the roof near the built in gutters. You can see one example of this in the first photo. They were totally rotted thru and we had to rebuild them. We then discovered a lot more rotted rafters and walls on the front lower porch. We sistered in new rafters, changed the angle of original rafters, new fascia, rakes, soffit and deck sheathing. We made everything strong. We then installated a new Owens Corning 50-year dimensional roof. The photos below of the before and after will explain better.
