Keokuk, IA

Built in 1881, the Church of All Saints is a excellent example of Gothic Revival style and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Composed of locally sourced clay brick, magnesium limestone, the 60x140 foot structure rests on a foundation of rough limestone. Its centermost tower rises a staggering 180 feet, complete with an eight sided spire and cross for a total height in excess of 200 feet. It is flanked by two towers, each 75 feet high. All told, Church of All Saints is among the tallest structures in Keokuk. This awesome height made it useful as a signal tower during The Civil War.

The Durable Slate Company was responsible for replacing the steeply pitched, North Country Black slate roof entirely; restoring the magnificent steeples, which included some ornamental metal work and wood replacement; concluding with new copper gutters and downspouts.

This project was recognized by the National Roofing Contractors Association, earning us a Gold Circle Honorable Mention in 2008.


More than a roof. It's a legacy.
