I’m inspecting an upscale home tomorrow afternoon that is advertised as having a “simulated slate” roof. I was curious if anyone had done one before and if so, are there any particular items to check for that are special for simulated slate?
I've been to several manufactures web sites to get basic familarity with the material.
Some slopes on this house are quite steep and I won't be walking on those but others would be walkable if it was a standard shingle roof. Is simulated slate in general walkable? Is it more slippery than regular shingles. Can it bear a normal walking load?
