    Joseph Jenkins climbed on his first slate roof in 1968, authored the first edition of The Slate Roof Bible in 1997, and published the second edition in 2003. Both editions received national awards. Now, a dozen years later, Jenkins is still very active in the slate roofing industry.  

    The third edition of the book reflects more than a decade of additional experience being passed on to the reader by a man who is one of the foremost experts on slate roofs in the United States today.

    This 132-page book is a reproduction of the original 84-page classic “Slate Roofs,” published in January 1926.  We adapted the title to be more compatible with a 21st century readership, and made some corrections and stylistic changes. Almost all the information is presented exactly as in the original publication, even anachronistic references. Included at the end of the book are 47 additional pages including 21st century guidelines for slate roof installation, repair, and restoration, as well as excerpts from the 2016 Slate Roof Bible 3rd Edition.
