Cutting slate roof tiles
Slate roof tiles are a great choice for every home. These tiles are very durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions. They have one disadvantage though, they will chip and crack.
Measure the size of the tile that needs to be replaced. The use a marker and draw the cutting line, applying slight pressure.
Cutting the tile
You can use a bench saw or a circular one with a masonry blade. Because the teeth are very fine, they will help avoid chipping the tiles.
If you do not have the proper tools, you can always take them to a home improvement center and have them cut by someone with the right skills and tools.
