Synopsis: The award-winning Slate Roof Bible, 2nd edition, has over 350 color photographs of slate and slate roofs from around the world, and a total of over 600 photos, illustrations, graphs, charts, diagrams, maps, etc. Jenkins' down-home style converts potentially tedious subjects like slate geology, roof safety, tools, installation, and repairs into readable delights. The book covers slate roofing history, culture and geology, along with complete descriptions and sources of tools, equipment and types and colors of slate, and comprehensive, step-by-step instructions on every aspect of slate roof installation, repair, restoration and recycling. It also includes sections on rebuilding chimneys, on soldered seam copper roofs, and on repair and restoration of ceramic tile and asbestos tile roofs. It is the culmination of 10 years of research and world-wide travel by the author.

From the Publisher: Few roofing books are described by professional reviewers as "fascinating," "a delight," and "simply enjoyable." Perhaps the Slate Roof Bible has caught the eye of readers like no other because of Joseph Jenkins' personal knowledge and enthusiasm regarding slate roofs, not to mention his "down-home" writing style. Some say that America's renewing interest in "the world's finest roof" is now due, in part, to The Slate Roof Bible. As construction trends turn toward "greener" buildings, stone roofs will certainly only grow in popularity. Knowledge of the natural beauty and fantastic success of slate roofing systems is only a book away from thousands of readers. With 10,000 copies of the first edition of The Slate Roof Bible already in circulation on three continents, we at Jenkins Publishing are now proud to announce:

The Slate Roof Bible, 2nd Edition, Completely Revised, Expanded and Updated!
Understanding, Installing, and Restoring the World's Finest Roof

What's new in the second edition? The original book was 287 pages; the second edition, despite serious space saving efforts, will total about 320 pages. The original 2 part book is now a 3 part book: Understanding Slate Roofs, Installing Slate Roofs, and Restoring Slate Roofs. The book will have 21 chapters instead of the original 15. New chapters include European Slating Methods, International Roof Slate, Roof Inscriptions and Designs, plus separate chapters for Flashing, for Recycling Slate Roofs, for Chimneys, and for Valleys, and an additional catch-all chapter for miscellaneous roofing systems often associated with slate roofs (such as soldered-seam copper roofs and ceramic tile roofs). You will now find illustrated sections on eyebrow dormers, rounded valleys, turrets, and other interesting roof details unique to slate roofs. You will also find approximately 361 photographs (195 in the 1st edition) and over 229 illustrations (175 in the 1st edition) adorning our new book, including a host of step-by-step installation, maintenance, repair and restoration drawings, as well as many photos showing the inimitable beauty that only a slate roof can display. And best of all, the entire book is printed in color. You can't do justice to slate roofs in black and white!
