Window Replacement On Slate Roof


How would you guys do this? I’ve never had to work on a slate roof before. I know there are ladders you can hang from the ridge and such but those aren’t useful here.

The scope of work is to cut the stucco all the way around the window for the new trim, pull the existing window, modify the opening as needed, flash and install a new window.

I just can’t see doing that all from inside leaning out the opening...

I would probably put down some low density white styrofoam sheets and then some osb on that. Put some 2x in the spouting to keep it all from sliding.

Re: Window Replacement On Slate Roof


couple of ply wood sheets with foam glued to them... the foam will keep the sheets in place.

Sucks getting old huh pops? The days start to run together...

Yes, I confirmed it's Wednesday before saying that.

If all goes well, the guys replace that window and another one plus paint some columns. Hopefully I'm not being too optimistic...

Re: Window Replacement On Slate Roof


That roof slate looks brittle and cracked already. Did you plan on replacing any slates? Usually i use a homemade wooden chicken ladder with foam under and then roof jacks, plywood, or planks can get screwed to them. Never liked the metal one as they get uncomfortable kneeling sitting laying on.
