Every winter storm, every heavy snowfall, and every drop of rain that falls on a roof will gradually, over the years, erode the slate on your roof; this eventually leads to them being loosened from their fixings. Once a slate moves from its fixed position the consequences are far reaching because the gap left will cause leaks which filter through to the slattens. Slattens are the lengths of timber which run horizontally along the whole length of the roof on top of the waterproof membrane. The tiles are fixed to these slattens by a roofing nail which keeps the tile in place.

Over time eventually the rain will filter down into these timbers and two things will begin to happen. One, the nails will become rusted and erode, and two, the slatten timbers will become rotten from the rain continuously seeping down under the slate. This is why a yearly inspection of house roofs, business premises roofs and conservatory roofs should be carried out. So here is the good news.
