The images below show an improper repair by a typical contractor, followed by a proper repair by a qualified slater.

On the left: Face nails and roof cement are a sign of improper repairs; a very short term repair at best. Also note the square slate in place of scalloped slate, detracting from the appearance of the original roof.

On the right: Note no face nails or roof cement, the use of scalloped slate to match the existing roof. All repair slate hung on slaters hooks—the sign of a qualified slater.
