From Our Clients

I want to thank The Durable Slate Company for the fantastic job they did in replacing the roof on The Church of All Saints in Keokuk, Iowa. The workmanship was superior. Your work crew was very understanding to the tough schedule or working around a busy church. I know this was inconvenient for your crew and I deeply appreciate it. Whenever anyone asks, “Who did your roof?” I respond “The Durable Slate Company from Columbus, Ohio, and I can highly recommend them.
