Installing the Best, Fixing the Rest

Posted on: July 8th, 2013 by editor

Last week Jim and Donald found themselves in Newton Center installing a new hip cap to a slate roof building. “Hips” refer to the ridges on roofs that connect each section starting from the outer corners to the point of intersection at the top.

There are many ways junctions of slate roofing can be joined. The most cost effective solution when repairing them is to remove the existing materials and install a brand new metal or copper hip cap.


To complete this in a safe and efficient process Landmark Roofing uses it’s own fully equipped sheet metal fabrication shop. The project also requires some careful staging up to and on your slate roof.
