Metal Roofing


A Technique Spanning Centuries

Historical Roofing Process

Metal roofing has a history that extends many centuries. In the early part of this country’s history, many important buildings were roofed with lead, copper, and tin (tin-plated iron). Today, the options for metal roofing for historical buildings include similar choices. Lead is still used, though mostly in Europe. Copper has stood the test of time, and is workable in many different applications. Terne-coated stainless steel (tin and zinc coated 304 stainless steel) can be used where corrosion from salt or run-off of copper might be a concern.

From Our Clients

I wanted to take a minute to thank Durable Slate and John, the foreman on our recent roofing job, for the work just completed. John was very helpful in explaining and updating me on the work. Despite on-and-off rain, John completed the job without delay which is very much appreciated. The roof not only looks great but it has improved the appearance as the tiles needed to appropriately cover the area were located by your company and installed by John and his crew. A nice upgrade!
