Post Is it good to install asphalt over Vermont slate?
on: June 21, 2020, 09:39

I saw something special today and wondered if anyone would have something to say.

I saw a roofing contractor install asphalt shingles (with felt paper) on an existing Vermont slate roof. The house was about 50 years old, the foundations / brick walls and generally the attic structure in these houses was 2 x 6 ". The slate on these roofs was generally less than 1/2" thick.

Is this a common practice in other parts of the country?

I think with the added weight added, the age of the house, any competent contractor would recommend removing the slate shingles first. Feel free to reply.
